Hugh McLachlan Sculpture
My sculpture is a response to changing states, where the sculpture, through the illusion of a highly polished surface, appears to flow, when in reality it is very hard stainless steel. The polished surface of the figure also wears the environment as a second skin, reflecting all the changes of light and sky in a dynamic way; nothing remains static.
The sculptures are a transformation – solid becomes liquid, static begins to flow. Flowing from one state to another, what is the reality? In a quantum physics world both states coexist in parallel realities.
