Pillows – Liz Middleton, City & Guilds of London Art School

Portland stone carving
50 x 65 x 61cm

I am a sculptor and stone letterer based in central London. I am interested in themes of repetition, mark making, subtle contrast and placement of form within space. My work is often site-specific using elemental materials like stone, coal, graphite, chalk and pigment.  I am currently exploring two threads of interest; inherited craft skill and contemporary sculptural use of stone.
Pillows is a variation on the device of drapery in historical stone carving.  I wanted to explore the contrast in weight of the stone, the subject, capturing a moment of inflation and emotive relationship between two forms.
