Porcelain

imageI have started to work in porcelain returning to the inside of the body and the human heart. This sculpture explores the arteries that emerge from the heart, they are like large tubes that pump the blood to the lungs.

To relate to my thoughts on sculpture and the boundaries of inside and outside; I want the viewer to be able to attempt to see what is inside the form but to realise that this boundary between inside and outside keeps us from seeing properly. We never seem to seem to find an inside, just more space, more outside newly exposed. When we see a surgical operation we expect to see an inside but we see more space. Going further in reveals the original outside. If we probe too far into the reality of within, the within will disappear.
