Unsworth, Jim

Jim Unsworth’s sculptures for Fresh Air Sculpture 2022, explore the nature of drawing in three dimensions and the way that broken colour contributes to the way we view the objects.

‘First Circle’ is almost like a scribble but caught in a moment in time. The colour helps build up the rhythm and velocity of the movement within the piece. The piece looks like it has arrived in an instant but in fact took months to make!

‘Once Yellow Together’ is a vertical family. The individual ‘beings’ have a dialogue with each other and articulate the space that they occupy both as individuals and as a group. We can intermingle with the trio and experience them close to as well as from a distance.
