Something is sinking in.
2019, bronze, wax, aluminium, 17 x 12 cm each
A series of cast makeup sponges, caught and contorted within cast shower curtain rings, are balanced upon aluminium cans. Half of the casts are wax, the other half bronze. All are finished with the same surface pigment. The variable weight of the objects distorts the aluminium supports as they rest open.
Something is sinking in. is a reflection on bodily complexities and physical/sculptural transformation through consumption. In considering the relationship between nourishment and form, this series directs attention to the intimate individuation of food and cosmestics as they are assimilated; subsequently becoming the body that consumes it.
