Sculpture Marathon: Lee Tribe and Guests

It is not uncommon for an artist to find an object (a stone, bone, a piece of driftwood) selected from a myriad of other things whilst out walking. These objects can be of the natural world, maybe from industry, or from human intervention. We spy them, relish them and their beauty, or are intrigued by their forms, their twists and turns, holes and spaces, their textures, their colors. We bring them into our homes, use them as weights or put them on a shelf. We look, we enjoy them. …Some artists use them: in this Marathon we will use them as the basis of our work. Each student will be asked to arrive with a selection of 4 to 6 things, “found art”, and present them to the class, extolling their merits. Two pieces per student will be chosen as starting points. We will take what we see as sculptural from the small wonders that we have found and use these qualities to create new work.  We shall enlarge them, play with a selection of materials to exaggerate different qualities. We will start with what we observe and explore, clarify and enhance what delights us in the found to make it our own. Play and experimentation will be encouraged, as will drawings and using a wide range of materials.
