'Against the Odds'

Cold cast copper

Holly Hickmore

‘Sculpture for me is the act of re-imagining through a material; revealing forms or drawing in space.

I endeavour create an innate understanding , rather than visual acuity.

To reproduce or copy something, I feel has become the domain of the 3D printer. 

The direction of form and rhythm across a piece lead by the inclination of the hand implies a sense of time, thought, and process condensed in an object giving a distinctly human quality. 

The essence of a piece is obtained through a continual dialogue between form, material and subject through constant evaluation and re-evaluation.’
