layers

Series of wall hung sculptures

I like to peer through the thin surface membrane of life into the substrata below. Layers is a series of eight sculptures looking beneath the visible to the supporting strata below. The sculptures explore the layers of sleep, time in the ocean, society, seasons, cityscapes and life and death.

Dimensions on each of the 8 sculptures: 50cm h x 30cm w x 10 – 20cm d
