Colette Griffin’s practice is concerned with shape, form and materiality. The work seeks to establish an unpredictable, dramatic relationship between material and form. The practice is process led, requiring continual physical intervention. Constantly reworked, all materials are used for their physical properties and some are stretched to breaking point.
Fragile and impermanent, the deteriorating latex replicates the changeability of the sculpture itself. Structures developed from EvoShape, shape generation software form the works solid component. Barely balanced the suspended sculptures show a potential for movement through visual tension. The sculptural outcomes tempt palpation but threaten to give way if handled.
