Artwork Statement
These sculptures are inspired by the processes of mineral solutions dripping in caves and weather-eroding soft substances from hard ones. They resemble stalagmites and are a hybrid of sculpture and cave formation, evoking both decomposition and deity. The works are a reinterpretation of Renaissance and neoclassical grotti and sentinel statuary but set in a future where they crumble and accrete in the fading of human existence. They also reflect on the anthropomorphisation of natural cave formations, where we search for familiar features and assign them identities as if they were members of a silent underground community.
