Artist / Stephen Nelson

Strange, fragile constructions in chicken wire, Japanese tissue, fabric and paint, which sit on ‘found’ plinths. The under water photograph is of a large Brain Coral and in a similar, opposite way it sits looking sculptural in a ‘collaged’ environment. These works are hard to classify and are nothing but themselves. They defy a critical context by representing something that is otherwise indescribable and that is the point.
