Flux III was made while Cluett was working at Wapping Studios, where she evolved a series of sculptures that had a sense of layering and stressing of materials within linear standing structures as drawings in space. Although Cluett’s linear sculptures include a sense of surprise, as if created by accident, their attachment gives finality to their composition. This sculpture is pinned and fastened to the floor and wall which stabilises the structure, but the subtle pull from both ends also creates a sense of elevation within space, and the shadows cast intensify the dramatic composition of the piece.
