THE RECONSTRUCTION OF SCULPTURE, 2017
Alexandria Frances Clow explores the act of painting as sculpture, merging the boundaries of both mediums to explore materiality and process.
The Reconstruction of Sculpture is a process-led piece, in which the manipulation of the material’s properties dictate the visual aesthetic through the heat distortion. The work is designed to be viewed from both sides, allowing the viewer to see the welding marks that create the intricate pattern, reinforcing the connection with the labour.
Supplementing the idea of temporality, rust continues to alter the work, its appearance will continue to develop over time unless treated.
Mild steel sheet metal and welding, 173 x 100 x 2.5 cm.
This piece was shortlisted for the 2018 HIX Award and also featured in Coutts Bank.
