What Lies Beneath - a global collaborative project by Fiona Legg regarding menstruation....finished pads are arriving from all over the world daily now - so exciting and each is so unique and thought provoking.
You can see them on the 'What Lies Beneath' page on this website. Updated daily.
The sculptures have been started and can be seen on the adjoining webpage.
18.5kg of tools are arriving tomorrow.....can't wait :)
'The Missing Sin' is a series of necklaces based on the seven sins.... Next exhibition booked is in January, 2019 at Queen Elizabeth Park Community Centre in Oakville.
The Maze Project has moved to Alton Mills Art Centre, Caledon, ON ...from May 4-October 31, 2018. A lovely spot for a day trip!!!!! It is now happily useable (the bench I mean, not as a climbing frame!!!) .
Outdoor life is hard on this sculpture, which collects dust, leaves, bugs etc - and rocks that people are throwing at it. I'm now going out every 2 weeks to clean and fix it - please let me know if anything needs tending to if you happen to notice. thanks!!! :)
A Distant Memory 2 has been sold and has started a new life appropriately on a bee farm!
'Excuse me, Ma'am? You have a hole in your ozone layer (#3)' (2018) Steel, skirt auto painted.
This beauty got the cadillac treatment of me driving her to New Brunswick for the Canadian Sculpture Competition 2018-2019.
The Beginning of a new (dusty) era.......
Simply gorgeous photographs by Marlisha Lewis of two of the necklaces that I have fabricated for the series titled 'The Missing Sin', which has been published in the July/August edition of Be Creative with Workbox magazine.
'Excuse me, Ma'am? You have a hole in your ozone layer (#2)' is installed in Elora for the Elora Sculpture Project, 2018. I painted this sculpture myself, and she is complete and ready to go!!!
It was a laborious and painstaking process to fabricate these sculptures...first I made her out of wood (sand, and sand some more - and literally blew up my first sander -, and varnish), then make mold, then weld hundreds and hundreds of small metal pieces into the mold, take it out, and then weld around each individual piece...then grind. I'm really pleased with the unexpected texture that this process made however !!! Typically Derek Martin, sculptor does all of my welding - but due to the huge amount of time involved, he kindly welcomed me into his workshop to weld and assist with all parts of the process (or we would never have finished!) Hundreds of hours have gone into each sculpture :)
To Protect the Neighbours from Me..or the other way around!
