This sculpture is now on show at the Royal West of England Academy Bristol in the 170th Open Exhibition.
The sculptures are a series of new works that combine cast polychromatic foam waste and wax.
The work has the feel of the sea where the unbelievable reveals itself to be the truth. The deep sea is our inner space and a world where light begins to fade and strange forms and structures come into view. The work references deep sea vents emitting dark, chemical-rich fluid. These structural elements deep from within the Earths core, reveal themselves and throw up questions of time and origin. The monumental structures can only be observed by robotic craft and then only through a monitor, or by diving in a deep sea submersible and viewed through a thick acrylic lens. All these observations give us a glimpse into a world of limited visual reference with limited tactile experiences.
"There's so much left to explore and find in the ocean,"
"The ocean provides 98 percent of living space on Earth. We don't know what else lives there."
George Matsumoto, a deep sea scientist.
