Tree Wrap

A tree ‘wrap’ I am currently working on. The ‘wrap’ is approximately one metre by two metres and sculpted out of corrugated cardboard. I am intending to fix it to a net backing (to prevent it falling apart – it’s a bit delicate!) before wrapping it around a suitable tree. Ideally, it would be fabricated in metal, but a lack of funding means this is not possible at the moment.

Green Man in The City

Further exploration into bringing ancient forms and symbols into a modern setting – the Green Man, ancient symbol of fertility, fabricated out of an old coke can and ‘metalised’ cardboard. The concepts are relevant to every society, ancient or modern and, as such, I am attempting to bring them up-to-date.

Nature Will Always Win

Word-tower: Play, Skip, Leap, Jump, Rest

Words of playfulness and wellbeing, again intentionally made in a geometric font, apart from “Rest” which is the bottom form, in a softer font (though unfortunately hidden amongst the undergrowth) and acting as the foundation for all the others. As with the previous piece, “Statistics Manipulate Truths”, I wanted the word-tower to be something that might be ‘discovered’ perhaps by people walking their dog, or just out for a stroll.

Green Man

Initial sketch made of a ‘Green Man’ (also known as ‘Jack ‘o’ Lantern’) probably to be used on a carved wood structure to house tealights. The design uses elements from sketches I made of wooden stumps, swirls and patterns from ancient stone carvings and some traditional carved stones found on many old churches.

Nature Will Win…

“Statistics Manipulate Truths” – large cardboard sculptures placed in a natural setting. The white, geometric, clinical shapes juxtaposed with the unruly, wildness of nature. Nature fights back and will always win… More natural setting to follow.
