Mobile (November 2019)
Tissue paper, wire, wood, fishing wire
63 x 45 x 15 cm
Each part of the mobile represents different elements of nature such as the sun and the moon, which interact with each other and are never fixed. This concept is linked to my theme of transient beauty and as the viewer interacts with the work their impression is ever changing with the movement and translucency of the colours. Alexander Calder influenced the kinetic design and the use of vivid, contrasting colors to show this universal subject.
Mobile II (February 2020)
Wire, tissue paper, pastel, translucent photographic images
30 x 60 x 60 cm
The wire-made leaves filled with colored tissue paper and translucent images attached to the branches let the light through, showing the ephemeral scene of sunlight filtering through leaves. A gradual change in colors on the leaves indicate seasons and changes in passing time. As the mobile revolves in the air, images from the different seasons appear. This kinetic movement was influenced by mobiles by Alexander Calder, and the movement highlights the delicate quality of Mobile II.
Daily story (November 2018)
17 x 23 x 4 cm
Daily story is based on the idea that daily life narrates life with everyday looking the same. The hands and stem show leading the lines in the road, and the leaves indicate day. The leaves get smaller along the hands backward to emphasize perspective. This is inspired by my drawing, To be continued and by a hand sculpture showing vital energy with a twinned stem by Kate Macdowell. The Hand of God by Rodin links to one of my concepts, the hands as a symbol of creation.
Tokyo (October 2019)
60 x 42 cm (1MB)
Tokyo is made from my own and google image photographs using PicsArt. It combines different photos of the sky showing the beautiful transformation of nature and photos of the city of Tokyo, that represent the sadness in a fast-paced city, where old fashions are replaced quickly by new ones and people forget what was there before. David Hockney’s photo collages influenced this piece. High buildings and an unnatural perspective emphasise the subject, how quickly the city changes.
