The Raft of the Medusa - Slade Research Centre, London. Initially inspired by Theodore Gericault’s epic painting, 'The Raft of the Medusa', these paper sculptures reference the subject of crossing water; a theme explored by artists for centuries to convey the struggle of mankind. On the horizon, Gericault rendered the ‘Argus’, the ship that saved the survivors of the raft. There is no sign of the ship nor the survivors amongst the weathered paper sculptures, however salvation is implied through the presence of the light and ropes. This work explores the emotionality of the human condition.
