SCULPTURES

I HAVE NOT CREATED MANY SCULPTURES AND SOME OF THOSE I HAVE WERE MADE IN THE GREAT OUTDOORS. 

HERE ARE THREE PHOTOS OF ONES MADE IN NATURE WITH ON SITE MATERIALS.

 

SCULPTURES AT LARGE.

Snow, such a rarity in Cornwall.

 

When, in 2004 we had some of this precious stuff I quickly rolled some snowballs as I knew it wouldn't be here long. This gave me working material from which I made the above.

On the left is a hollow ball about 50cm high. I managed to cut out a hand silhouette which gave interesting shadows and shapes as the sun shone through. 

On the right are 6 hollow snowballs of varying sizes, the largest being about 25cm in diameter. They lasted a few hours then were gone. 

 

I very nearly had no record of these. I'd run out of film (film!) for my camera and had no money for more, BUT.. I had a video (video!) camera. Years later, when all my vids had been put on disc, I paused the disc and photographed the TV screen. A method I've used to good effect many times. (See BREAK IN on the Paintings page.)

 

A beach sculpture near the Red River, Gwithian Beach, Hayle, Cornwall.

2013.

 

Grey beach pebbles and quartz pebbles arranged into a cone. 

The cliffs here sometimes yield a soft yellow stone - ochre? - which can be used as a crayon. Here, I coloured some of the dull grey stones bright yellow.

I revisited the sculpture after a week and it was reasonably intact, but covered in blown sand.
