British sculptor Laura Ellen Bacon uses raw materials such as willow branches, to create large-scale abstract sculptures which she installs in indoor or outdoor settings.
Working with her bare hands and few other tools, the art pieces are processed in several stages of sketching and weeks of weaving. “I began making my early works upon dry stone walls and evolved to work within trees, riverbanks and hedges, allowing the chosen structure (be it organic or man-made) to become host. I am still powerfully driven to create spaces of some kind and over a decade into my work, my passions continue to merge creatively with architecture,” she wrote on her website.
She will be exhibiting a new work at this year’s Collect: International Art Fair for Modern Craft and Design, which will start on February 28 until March 3, 2019.
