Footsteps, wax, pinecone, moss, leaves, bark, grass and flowers, 62 x 5 x 40cm, 2021.
The Footsteps sculpture consists of individual tiles made from wax and organic materials. Like those used as decor in houses, the tiles are symbols of a forest floor being walked on without consideration, however as artworks in the floor of a room they are respected and walked around. When Footsteps is installed into a gallery’s floor, it plays with the concept of taking a step, and the viewer’s hesitation to walk on the tiles brings attention to the delicacy and importance of nature beneath our feet.
I used wax to preserve the organic matter and by mixing it with hot wax and moulding it in water, I give it reconstructed significance.
