I am delighted to have received a grant from Arts Council England as part of their Developing Your Creative Practice fund.
My project is to extend my sculpture skills to explore casting methods so that I can cast found objects in multiples to create forms that become raw material for new works.
Part of the funding would pay for two courses of mould-making and casting with London Sculpture Workshop.
I will then spend time in the studio experimenting with the skills and processes I have learnt to develop my own personal language that can be used in future works for exhibition and commission.
I wish to cast multiples of artefacts in order to disrupt and reinterpret their value and meaning within sculptural constructions. Once cast the forms may be further transformed and degraded so they take on new roles within the sculpture, bringing a new vocabulary to my work and revealing new narratives.
