Inside Out

'Inside Out' series of work is concentrated on the exploration and expression of the relationship between internal and external spaces with significant contrasting elements such as forms, textures and colours.

 

This collection involves the utilisation of highlighted incisions and openings on edges as gates to reveal and emphasise the link of internal and external space. Introducing the change of light as a catalyst to go through the work and formulate different shadow as a changeable echo of the work itself. It strengthens the visual impact, questions the relationship between the work and its surroundings.

Each piece is unique as a result of a carefully controlled and purposely structured making process. All the pieces are handmade in gilding metal with appropriate techniques including plating and oxidising.
