Series of four steel and enamel architectural sculptures

Four architectural abstracted sculptures defined as ‘Lives of Spaces
y artist Lisa Traxle
After creating a Vitreous Enamel wall cladding installation for the awarding winning house (2nd Prize AJSP2010). Lisa Traxler continued to explore her response to the architectural situation around her by exploding this two dimensional format into a three dimensional architectural composition. Carving space within the setting of ancient woodland the artist drew on memory and recollection to interpret this entity within the spirit of its place
Responding to the surrounding Architecture the work consists of large-scale steel and vitreous enamel architectural sculptures. These begin as delicate paper maquettes that are constructions of small clusters of individual sheets that are deftly cut and torn, coloured with paint and delineated with graphite. There is a lightness and poise to these objects that suggest they capture a fleeting, transitory moment of vision. The revelatory nature of her compositions in space. These ephemeral paper maquettes are transformed through industrial process to become concrete objects that inhabit real space where they form intimate relationships with the immediate environment.
