Feral Exhibition
Scarlett Newton

The history of physical presence around an object is something that I strive to mimic within my pieces. I feel by capturing a moment of movement, such as the fluidity of water dripping off an edge, gives the audience their own frozen second in time. I aim for this to prompt the viewer to question what simple interaction has caused such a chaotic result.

I work with containers; casting them into materials that can be easily manipulated, exploding the object into something that can no longer be contained. I aim to capture a sense of freedom; which I hope to transcend to the audience. Using wax allows me to let the shapes fall freely around an existing body; such as an edge or corner. Layering the colour tinted wax bottles pushes the sculpture to grow. Due to this, the scale of my sculptures are often forever growing; catalysed from that one original motion.
