The latest sculptures by Aisling Hedgecock mark a turning point back to the traditional medium of bronze. The historical importance of our relationship with the material is fundamental, it resides at the beginning of our romance with metal, simultaneously seductive, destructive and creative. These scaled objects bring us closer to an understanding and confrontation with our proximity to turmoil.

Made over the last four years, during which we have witnessed multiple unfolding catastrophes, the unique sculptures eloquently comment on the ensuing chaos. However, they also speak of the joy of alchemy, the transmutation of matter, in this case, wax to bronze. Within the objects, there is humour, pathos and often an anarchic nod to the Grotesque, a willing irreverence to disrupt the traditional classifications between flesh and stone.

Each work is singular and unique. Cast and hand-finished in Dorset, UK
