83LODEdetail

Description:
These Installation art works are a combination of elements that make up my work using found plastics. Contemporary environmental art installation, made from found plastic objects, nylon rope and stainless steel.

The “Lode” sculpture was a work from my hanging installation series, which evolved very naturally. It originated from a tightly bound fisherman’s netting which I found on the north coast beaches. As I worked with this in the studio it began to take the shape of a large rectangle which at first had many holes in it. I mended all of those holes and began to draw it together and saw that it naturally started to take the shape of a kind of bee hive. It was in this shape that I began to put sturofoam and white plastic objectsthat I had found on the beaches over the years. I was amazed to see the sculpture take on is such a significant shape as the one that it did, because it naturally followed the contours of of a bee hive. In many ways this is also how the other works from my hanging installation series came about. Quite accidentally as an  evolving process.
