The Monomaterials

The ‘Mono-Material’ sculptures (1993 – 1995) are inspired by growth processes of plants and animals. Each sculpture is created from a single material without the use of an internal armature. Developed organically by a wrapping process that arises from its material qualities each sculpture is built up in layers until the moment of ‘birth’. At birth they are considered to be fully-grown reflecting the dimensions of their parent with their material subverted and transformed.
