Fragments 4

Fragments is a series about the process of sculpting and painting. My aim was to create layered, gesture-like works void of all representation. For a single work, I combined several layers of cast concrete; each time, the works grew in size. During the process, I broke some of the works and made new combinations out of the pieces. In time, what I did became a three-dimensional process-painting-cum-sculpture, yielding a number of disintegrated combinations of several cast layers and joints. I made the moulds out of construction materials, board and canvas. Their structure became part of the works. The final series is a collection of the incidents that took place, recollections of something that used to be.
