An expression of forms through fabric in suspension. Not the draping of fabric in a fashion sense, but in the sharp folds and piercing peaks in taut membranes. Or the sagging ripples in a deflated one.
The sculpture is in tension . It is fighting the form – the frame constructed for it and the threads which bind it. It bends the steel rods and snaps carefully routed strings. The expression is an organic process which cannot be predicted – one additional point of tension creates a response in the entire system.
There is a certain frustration in the material mutilation.
TENSE 01 is the first piece from a lineage of studies which begins to investigate fluid and organic ideas in sculptural membrane form.
