‘Interplay’ expresses a symbiotic dance between art and nature. The sculptural forms are poised mid-waltz with the trees. Each of these screens is unique, inspired by microscopic photographs of plants. They are intended as a reminder of the little marvels that surround us; growth, decay, transformation.
These sculptures began with my drawings of the cellular structure of plants. The drawings were cut from steel, rolled to create a curve, then hand beaten by blacksmiths to create interesting sculptural forms. The screens were coated with Axolotl copper and aged with Verdigris, hand polished and sealed. The effect created is of a richly aged surface. The sculptures look like they belong beneath the trees, and as though they have always been here.
