This catalogue accompanied Ruth Claxton 2008 exhibition Lands End.
An environment of open frameworks creates a dramatic fabrication of interlocking and layered forms reminiscent of fantastic natural phenomena. Areas of density and focus are developed by sequences of stacked metal hoops of varying thickness, coloured and mirrored discs, seemingly precariously balanced, toppling over and into each other.
The structure is dominant, at times appearing to be one of dynamic, arrested motion, penetrating through walls, creating a tension with the architecture of the galleries. Mirrored surfaces implicate the viewer through endless reflection. The carefully fabricated stands retain their utopian reference to design while recalling organic structures such as the Giant’s Causeway or crystalline geological forms.
Ruth Claxton was the Arts Foundation Sculpture Prize Winner for 2012.
