Harriet Aston returns with an intriguing new collection of paper sculptures. Increasingly abstract and gently defiant, each piece deftly sidesteps description or classification.
A strong sense of ‘otherness’ pervades. They have an insistent presence and a solid appearance that belies their fragile ephemeral nature. Made from salvaged brown wrapping paper, the waxy surface is dyed to mottled ‘skin like’ appearance.
The most striking essence of all the works is their isolation. Although they share their materials and construction methods no two pieces are the same and even when close together they are silently and calmly disconnected.
