My ongoing project titled the Absence of Form is an exploration into negative space, specifically the space around the physical form. I wanted to create work which looks past the physical and focuses on the space between us and capture the interaction between individuals and solidify it. These sculptures are a series depicting the negative spaces of lovers embraces to fragments of the form, made from multiple different mediums. I have made the choice to use unconventional mediums such wax and soap to give the sculptures a skin like texture and feel. The plaster and pewter give a weight to the sculptures, cementing them in reality. The spaces cast initially could never be held, whereas now are physical objects which can be felt and seen, this process is like 3D photography capturing a moment in time.
The Absence of Form is about capturing the fleeting moments of life, by freezing intimate moments in time and making these negative shapes and embraces physical sculptures
