Harriet Aston
Exhibition:
‘Shooting From the Hip’ 12th – 24th September 2014

@ Centrespace Gallery, Bristol
Harriet makes paper sculptures that sprout from the walls and floor. They burst and peel open, their bruised skin-like surfaces spreading like giant butterfly shapes or elephants ears, either pinned or floating free.
Free standing works have either split like seed pods and opened offering sheltered recesses, or are tightly closed like standing stones with deep folds or fissures revealing glimpses of contrasting colour within.
