Bags, enameled copper and concrete, Sally Aplin
Introducing April’s sculpture plinth local artist Sally Aplin.
The small bags are constructed from thin copper, coated in vitreous enamel and kiln fired.
The large bags are made from concrete cast in a mold with synthetic handles. These bags are made from unlikely, contrary materials for a receptacle. The copper bags are lightweight and fragile, the concrete are heavy and solid.
During 35 years of art practice Sally Aplin has focused on similar themes, carry bags, trees, seedpods, decay, the body and ageing. Her work has an emphasis on surface and tactility which she has explored extensively in her university dissertations covering topics such as materials and making of sculpture, as well as looking and touching, investigating response to surface.
