Sculpture Series

 

While in Berlin I had begun to create miniature paper sculptures and these developed into using polymer clay to create less illustrative and more realistic looking doll-like figures. These formed part of sculptures and a series of photographs of the small figures which straddled the line between being realistic and creepily doll-like. These miniature people also became subjects for a series of paintings. When back in Ireland, I continued with these figures to a degree and began to create larger sculptural pieces such as the head above, which was created specifically for an exhibition in response to the Cavan Burren and wider Geopark including the cave system.
