THE feel of moulding cold steel into shape is very physical according to sculptor Aileen Francis.
Her artworks will form part of the Rogue Sculptors’ new exhibition Snap Shots to open tomorrow night.
“It’s very physical and I just like the work you have to put in to lift it and bend it,” she said.
Mrs Francis’ steel rod sculptures will be hard to miss at the exhibition.
“I bend it and weld it together and I’ve done these large figures that are climbing up the wall,” she said.
Rogue Sculptors is a group of central west artists. Twelve of them have entered works in the Snap Shot exhibition.
Artists include Carol Endean-Little, Chris Cowell, Christine Lanham, Jane Tyack, Jill Trudgen, Karin Smith, Natalie Reid, Remus Muntean, Tom Buckland, Tony Dagg and Vikki Blazely.
Mrs Francis said the two-day exhibition will be a great opportunity to see the wide range of sculpting styles and materials.
“Our brief is to raise awareness of sculpture in the area so it’s a good opportunity to see what can be done with sculpture,” she said.
Snap Shots will be officially opened by artist/curator Bradley Hammond tomorrow night at 6pm for a 6.30pm start at the Parkview Hotel.
The exhibition will then continue on Saturday from 10am to 4pm.
Entry is free.
