In the same way that Tony Cragg understands sculpture as a study of how material and material forms affect and form our ideas and emotions, Danny Fotopoulos tries to find new relations between people and the physical world in his abstracted organic forms. Fotopoulos’ intent is not to recreate the physical shape of human anatomy but to express the fluidity present in all living things. Static organic materials including bronze and wood seem to change their inherent state and appear molten and fluid, creating undulating forms.
Exhibition opens 6—8pm Friday 25 October 2019
