Part of the show Journeys
Sue Sharples's protective and defensive, jagged-edged sculptures
contrast with the open, friendly and welcoming works, created by
Sue produces hybrid sculptural forms, combining the organic with
the idealised functionality of Post Industrial nostalgia. They convey
both the optimism and pessimism of society. Their ambiguity reflects
concerns over genetic engineering and bio-technology, whilst her
cage-like structures challenge perceptions of protection and confinement.
The exhibition features examples from her highly regarded "States
of Ambiguity" series.
