‘Not a…’

”Not a Monument’, 2020. Steel, teak, concrete, imitation Georgian jug

Exhibited in ‘Still Here: Women making Abstract Sculpture‘ at A.P.T. Gallery, London, 2023.

In 2020, looking for alternative ways to present smaller sculptures other than on plinths, Gillian started to place them on larger sculptural structures. This has resulted in a series of works; Not a Table, Not a Stand, Not a Monument, Not a Column, Not a Rack…

The sculptures are made of a range of media and use various methods of joining materials, including encasing found objects in concrete, tying with rubber strip and inserting metal into wood.
