Nicola Plant

Nicola Plant's practice crosses disciplines of architecture, sculpture and drawing to create linear structures with bold colours and geometric shapes. The wooden sculptures are reminiscent of childhood games as they have a tactile aesthetic, inviting the viewer to play. The combination of hand made and industrial qualities give the sculptures a unique style. Inspiration for the work is drawn from the familiarity of modernist architecture in urban landscape. Recent work invites interaction from the viewer to play with and reconfigure the component parts of the sculptures. The sculptures have no fixed composition allowing many configurations to be made and reassembled. Positioning the work in the public realm allows for chance encounters for a wide audience to experience. The work has previously been shown in a public park were visitors reassembled the sculptures. The bright colours and angular shapes used give an interruption and opportunity to react to a public space in a renewed way. read full statement
