Proposition II, 2018

Materials/Media: Soot, Brass, Stainless Steel.

Proposition II is a development of an series of works in which I use a candle and its residue – soot – as my tools. Within these ‘sooted’ works, materials and surfaces lean or rest upon each other for support. The work was first exhibited at New Bridge Projects in 2018 and then Each Toward the Other, a three person show exploring spatial and visual degrees of freedom by leaning, handing, dwelling, pinning, resting and sitting, with Nicola Ellis and Joe Hancock at Bury Sculpture Centre.
