‘BEYOND THE CLOUDS’ explores the capacity of materiality and symbolism. The sculptural plinth is comprised of a steel frame, ornate with solid limestone and unique porcelain elements. Through the use of multi-dimensional forms, ceramic and stone elements carved by hand the work reads differently from each angle. It is with this contrasting of materials, the exploration of form and function that the artist considers how we perceive functional objects. ‘Useful’ objects are often plain in purpose but the covert and overt potential is there. What a work embodies may be something we bring or is it something built? The storytelling potential of objects is often overlooked, can anything a human makes truly be inanimate?
