Sculpture - Evolution - Marble resin, calico, bronze and jesmonite - Artist and Sculptor Sally de Courcy

Evolution

This work explores Aristotle’s theory that the whole becomes greater than the sum of its parts. By using deconstructed and repeated form and magnifying repetition of imperfection, a physical evolution occurs – repetition creating difference not replication.

About The Artist

My work aims at challenging our perception of ourselves, our fragility and strength.

My sculptures evolve by manipulating multiple cast objects so that the whole becomes greater than the sum of its parts. Using repetition as emphasis, the outcome has a decorative geometry and kinetic unity that expresses are shared human experiences and conditions.

Bones are emblematic in much of my work, and the contextually linked objects reveal a narrative. Although frequently ornate, my sculptures hide darker and often sinister subjects that when revealed create dissonance. The sum like an optical puzzle, oscillates between beauty and nightmare.

My work is not autobiographical in the figurative sense, but like many artists, explores the liminal space between conscious representation and unconscious influence.

Recently my work has looked at the humanitarian aspects of the COVID19 pandemic and the current crisis of refugees crossing the English Channel.
