The New Silver, Galerie Ra Amsterdam 15.12.12 – 30.01.13
The forms realized in this presentation of work have come about through my experience of working in a foundry in Bogota, Colombia.
The ferocity and raw power of the casting process is reminiscent of existing forces in nature; tectonic shifts, and volcanic activity. As a result, the concept of the work changes from being merely an object, to being part or element of a significant process.
This change of thinking, stepping back away from the finished object and focusing on the processes that went into it’s realization, is a significant development for me, a departure from existing thinking and a move towards a process led form of investigation.
