My Degree Show

Four Houses (Detail) 2010
Plaster, Resin, Wax, Concrete

Wow, I suck at blogging it seems. I MUST be more frequent with this! Anyhow, I had my degree show...about a month ago now! June 7-11th. It's crazy how long I've worked towards it, and it went like the click of a finger! I'm very proud of the outcome though, especially my houses :)

My work was made up of casts of dolls' houses. The casting process inevitably enacts the creation of a replica of an object that no longer exists and accordingly its memory is made tangible. Evoking a memory of the transitional period between childhood and adulthood, my work attempts to create an element of play through the choice of materials, colour, size and weight.
