Its been a week of bashing, hammering, brazing, welding and inhaling nasty fumes but finally order is emerging from the chaos.
Three newly formed ladders have now arrived in my studio and are now beginning to forge their own connections and meaning within the group of artworks that are already at home there.
They all seem to be getting on well for the most part. Better than I expected perhaps, considering the infighting that could have taken place between the rival cones who have recently been usurped from their position of supremacy. Somehow their meanings, though overlapping, are also complementary.
Im hoping that the ladders won’t be too climbable, but just enough to hook the imagination in preparation for the ascent. It’s important that they don’t touch the ground but drift slowly just above it, rotating in the breeze.
