I hadn’t made any of these curved pieces for a while and forgot how rewarding they are to create. Unlike my larger figurative work, relating to my line drawings, these are produced
I do start off with a preliminary idea which, as I stand in my shed, listening to music and forming the figures, then becomes secondary and the composition reveals itself, changing as the figures are added, strangely though, it always relates to something we have done, said, heard, believe etc. in general relating to our lives and what we are about. The titles are there simply to give an impression of what the image is about, sometimes a very loose interpretation and sometimes very personal to us, but I always think a
title helps when others are viewing the work. Sometimes they can agree with the title, other times they put their own spin on the image and the title is not relevant, either way it doesn’t matter, as long as the viewer is getting something from the image.
These twelve curved panels which depict various scenes of Stickies going about their business, whatever they are doing, are a very important factor in the way I work. Sometimes they relate to a larger line drawing image and are born because of this relationship. Other times the stick figures are created first and a larger
figurative image is produced at a later stage, so it works both ways.
They both influence each other.
These small panels (33 cm x 10 cm) are curved very slightly, which allows them to be free-standing and are created from glass, copper and sterling silver.
