SCRUMPLE’ 2017 is my a favourite of my abstract sculpture compositions. It is a fabulous flowing, circular artwork and is a celebration of the bronze mesh that I use to make the sculpture. The title suggests that the mesh has been ‘scrumpled’ into a fabric and then fruit added, they become part of the circular motif and I love the way that the circle in the middle, an empty space, frames the nature that you can see right through the sculpture.
On a more personal note ‘
SCRUMPLE’ takes me back to when I was a child when I used to go with other kids from the street to steal apples - hence the word scrump, scrumping. And we used to climb the fence into the fields and fit as many fruits into our T-shirts, into the fabric as we could possible fit and then escape!
