Artist's description:

Framed - 40cm x 40 cm x 3 cm

I am fascinated by cities, in particular their buildings and architecture. In some ways skyscrapers represent the madness of human competition, egocentrically straining to reach higher than each other, like trees struggling for light and space.

In other ways they can be seen organically - like mushrooms springing up spontaneously in the same spot. Yet having said this, I can’t help myself from admiring the technical aspect of skyscrapers - how architects and engineers realise their overall vision, how Maths and creativity mysteriously combine to demonstrate the pinnacles of one of human achievements.

I chose to work with recycled offcuts of wood, found 3D objects, ceramic tiles, coloured mirror and dichroic fused glass.

Materials used:

Unglazed ceramic tiles, coloured mirrors, recycled 3D objects, dichroic glass fused
