Background, history, commissioner of the work
Flow II was carved during my undergrad at DJCAD, Dundee and it was recycled from a building. Sandstone is and was a very common building material. It is a sedimentary rock and the blonde type in this carving is probably from the Carboniferous period (approx. 320 million years ago) Made using only hand tools.
I feel that using part of the earth that has been transformed into stone over millennia, changed again into a building material (I often use recycled stone) and yet again altered, visits the idea of vibrancy. The sculpture is not just the object but also the space around it, which has it’s own vibrant nature. This piece was part of an exploration into the curves in nature, Fibonacci sequence and the sea itself.
