Sculpture description:
Kerstin Hedström often uses consumed objects, silent witnesses and symbols of events, feelings and experiences that, when put together, create patterns, surfaces and shapes. The objects, like other material she uses, vary depending on occasion and preconditions. She often chooses materials that break and reflect the light, create optical effects and lend her works life and movement. The collecting plays a substantial part of her work process. Commonly the object per se evokes thoughts and feelings at first. Then, during the collecting phase, ideas start to grow and slowly take shape. She has been collecting medicinal blisterpacks for many years. In each pack, she saw a reflection of the person who had pressed out the pill, as though the packs were storytellers. Some packs are pressed inward, handled in a rush. Others are neat and the transparent plastic around the pill has been put back into shape. Houses sometimes get to symbolize the ego and our concept of ourselves. By means of blisterpacks, thin offset plates, thin foam rubber and light Kerstin Hedström evokes thoughts on human togetherness, loneliness and desolation in the flickering light.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."

Customer comment on 'Brasil - Chess (Corporate Commission of an entire edition)' by Plamen Dimitrov
Although it seemed a daunting project to commission a sculpture on the internet with a tight deadline, Plamen Dimitrov in Bulgaria made it as easy as possible for me in Brazil by producing a series of little clay sketches after each email and sending photos it seemed by return. He worked round the clock and was incredibly intuitive with his understanding of what I wanted. This was despite an 8 hour time difference and having poor English as our common language. He w...
