Between UK Taiwan Japan and Germany
This ceramic sculpture falls under my series called Open Sculptures. These investigate ways of seeing inside and out space using colour and line. The intention is to draw and scatter the eye to investigate different parts of the form simultaneously.
The inspiration behind this work stems from my fascination with stone circles in the UK such as Stonehenge. They are places full of mystery, it invites me to ask questions and imagine. The sculpture suggests an architectural presence and can also relate to clouds. It is also partly inspired by my travels through Taiwan, Japan and Germany. I used pictures (transfers) to symbolise different countries. I wanted to communicate a fusion of different cultures and the experience of crossing in-between different spaces.
