THE
STORY
OF

Rhonda

Artist Statement

Primarily the sources of my imagery come from what I see every day from nature or a past memory which evokes a process of sketching, writing a passage of thought or taking a photograph to capture that ‘snap shot’ idea. From here I will play with form, materials and dimension, working with a Marquette for proof of concept. Each project often consists of multiple works, often in a range of different media, grouped around specific themes and meanings. During research and production new areas of interest arise and lead to the next body of work.

With a construction industry background and working in IT and Graphic Design lending itself to understanding the processes of and translating the architecture, geometry and physics into sculpture.

The combination of life experiences and working with a medium to express that emotion or experience is a very gratifying process. To tell a story, connect with the audience and emote a thought process.

The body of work I’m presenting at present is stainless steel and Corten sculptural pieces that are characterised by clean flowing lines that reflect light and their surrounds, picking up a kaleidoscope of colour and taking on a life of their own. Often combined with sandstone or timber to give warmth and a character.
