Alison Wilding: Studio visit

'Sometimes the material that feels wrong is the correct one to use'

Alison Wilding's works represent abstract sculpture at its best, combining a rich variety of materials, techniques and forms. Her sculptures often bring together two separate elements establishing close relationships between contrasting materials, textures and colours, while exploring the polarities between light and shadow, revelation and concealment. Wilding is keen to stress that with sculpture, you don't immediately 'get the whole thing'; as a viewer, you need to walk around a piece and put work into looking at it it as a form in order to fully appreciate it.
