http://www.brightonjettyclassicsculptures.com/portrait-of-a-sculptor.html I was recently interviewed as part of the Adelaide Airport Brighton Jetty Classic Sculptures - see link above. It was a great experience which helped me reflect on my work and my practice, something I don't often get a chance to do.
Having my piece "Submergence" selected as the indoor prize winner in the Adelaide Airport Brighton Jetty Classic Sculptures Exhibition 2012 seems a perfect place to begin documenting my journey. Having begun this sculpture in the second half of 2011 at TAFE whilst working towards a Certificate IV in Visual Arts and Contemporary Craft it was my intention to enter it in this exhibition. It was a means of keeping the momentum going of the sculpturing that I had discovered at the beginning of the year while I completed other subjects in the course. The use of the paperclay medium has been completely experimental. I was initially drawn to it's lightness and adaptability to various techniques. I was especially intrigued by the way it could be used as a liquid to achieve and solid state which lead me to begin to experiment with 'dipping' the paperclay in various mediums to create shape and form.
I am so pleased with the final result, each part of 'Submergence' reflecting a different technique of using the paperclay. I haven't finished with it yet and am now beginning to work on another piece for Nourish a Red House member's exhibition at Gallery M. My intention is to incorporate driftwood and glaze with the next project.[slideshow]
