This piece is concerned with the ‘making’ and how artist’s actions can be defined as the actual work of art. Seeing art as pure human expression, the remnant and leftover becomes the end piece that stands as record of activity. Experimenting with a material of transformative nature, I have used my gestures to capture my fight with the plaster residue as it sets. On the one side I try to give the texture and highlight the degree of plasticity, as means of interaction between the work and my hands. On the other side the shape of the mixing tank is captured along the knife scratches on the plastic surface: signs of the repeated process of making. Vessel outlines the overall form, traced with marks and imprints permitting both a literal and allusive materiality. Mass is eroded by these forces, highlighting the value of art lying in the creative process, rather than the deliverable or end product. In this way tension is frozen to stillness, implicit of repetition and subsequently time.
