Šárka Darton, ‘Hide & Seek’, 2015, Candida Stevens

A unique piece made using "lost wax", so called because the mould is destroyed to remove the cast item.

Made up of four separate components that can be separated and stacked in a number of ways. A playful somewhat Byzantine piece. The smooth 'faces' give way to rough unkempt hair, just like a child in a tree. Referencing the transition of childhood to adulthood.

Part of ICON exhibition at Candida Stevens Fine Art (9 Sept - 23 Oct 2016)
