Flume is a sculptural story about sensual form and transition. It was made at the request of one of my galleries. The gallery owners requested a 'more sensual sculpture in blue'. That was an interesting requests as it was both vague and precise. I like to listen to the requests of my galleries as they have a unique and different perspective on the art world from me, so I did my best to oblige.
This piece was created alongside of my sculpture Hubris, however this one uses gestures and lines that are more classically 'me'. I struggled with the color as I wanted to use a blue that was new to me and at the time of creating this was still wrestling with increasing my color palette - there was I time I refused to paint sculptures and there are still remnants of that sentiment deep within me. In the end I chose a blue with the help of the gallery director of another gallery of mine who I respect greatly.
In the end I feel this piece conveys a sensual motion while playing with negative and positive space and shadow in a new way for me. I hope you enjoy it.
