Bark, Skin and Stumps
Portfolio of sculptures made from reclaimed acrylic sheets, tubes and offcuts.
Discarded plastics formed through heat become tree bark, skin and stumps. Referencing the burnt-out redwood trees of California that stand as monuments to disruption. Where wildfire has penetrated the thick outer layer of bark, the remainder becomes a sculptural site of regeneration and a bearer of hidden life. My abstracted forms are shells, skins and shelters; hollowed relics of ruin and places of protection.
