Cane and paper
72 x 43 x 43 cm
Our sculpture is inspired by new life bursting up through the soil and reaching for sunlight. Its twisted tendrils extend upwards, longing for freedom. The leaves spread out, searching for nutrients. Its papery fronds fall outwards, the skeletal cane bending and twisting. We used tissue paper and cane to create the structure and we twisted our cane to create the tendrils. Our sculpture was inspired by the Australian artist Bronwyn Oliver.
