Heather Deedman (UK)

Studio 3B
October 2004 to January 2005

The two main areas of practice in the work of Heather Deedman are sculpture and drawing, these co-exist and one continually informs the other. As areas of work they run parallel to each other and then cross paths on both anticipated and unpredictable points of research. The drawing is never a representation of, or plans for, specific sculpture but is a vehicle for investigating form. Heatherís sculptural practice has included the use of a diverse range of materials, paper, paint, wire, found objects etc. Recently she has been working in the field of ceramics and making forms from the clay body porcelain. A common thread in the work of Heather is an interest in decoration and how itís language can be a code for cultural values and differences.
