Through a mutual appreciation of totemic structures, Wilma and I created this set made of exotic fruit. Since 'The exotic' is a prominent theme throughout my work it made sense to build our totems using as many weird and wonderful fruits as possible. The colours and textures available are astounding.
We wanted to treat the fruits as legitimate sculptural medium by carving them into geometric shapes yet allowing their natural beauty to do the talking.
It was an exercise of finding perfection in imperfection!
Fruit is after all a physical mass like clay and wood is, but fruit is unequivocally more beautiful in all its variety of colour and form. Removing the automatic association to being a part of our diet, it perhaps allows us to appreciate fruit from a fresh angle.
An 'Other Worldly' still life project with WILMA. These pictures were designed to evoke the familiarity we have in our journey's, discoveries, dreams and fears.
This self initiated project was born from my curiosity of all things curious, particularly from a Victorian science and exploration point of view.
I wanted to make a series of paper constructed studies of these subjects, to try to excersie my keen interest in them by sculpting detailed clones using only paper and glue.
