Aisling Hedgecock




Hedgecock's individually coloured and clustered polystyrene balls influence my work due to my interest in a number of it's elements: the vibrant contrasting colours; the sense of something living; the zoomed in short-field-depth photography which makes the above images look like microscopic worlds of their own; the organic nature of the works which seem to allow the materials/process to dictate the outcome of the pieces; the nature of the polystyrene which makes the surface appear incredibly intricate and tactile.
Like a drawn image created from an infinite number of marks, Aisling's sculptures appear to have the potential to keep growing. They are bursting with the theme of growth and infinitum, which for me links them to the fantastical.
