divers in the garden

back to past work


Chicken wire and clingfilm figures swimming in the cherry tree


This is some very early work from about 2001-2 which I reinterpreted in early 2009 when it snowed at home. I love working with the human figure, whether it’s life drawing, fashion or 3-dimensional work like this. I always called these guys ‘The Divers’ – sadly they no longer exist, having fallen victim to moving house and needing to streamline my hoardings. Depending on the light their transparency varied and I think they worked really nicely in the cherry tree, contrasting with its darkness and solidity. I hope the photos give some idea of the scale and effect.
