The Metal Wall Relief

These wall pieces involve everything I know about sculpture – flat and dimensional space with all of the techniques which promote movement around the composition – primitive and so-called developed practices, pictorial and non-objective. There is the use of symbols I find historically visceral, made from upholstery springs, flattened, cut-up and re-pieced back together. This stems from the 1st Spring Screen hanging sculpture I made from flattened conical springs, commonly known as bed springs. The zig-zag upholstery spring also provides product in combination with each other. This Interest in these two materials from the Industry came to become the wall reliefs I now make.
