Rachel Kneebone – The will to proceed to the end of possible.
A piece constructed of broken body pieces which look to have been placed in a way to create something of completely different meaning. From a distance it looks like flowers and tree trunks growing around a piece of brick. When looking up close you can see the legs and arms of the human form. The use of porcelain works well as it gives the overall image a fragile nature feel.
Kneebone’s piece in the National Gallery in Cardiff really related to what I was doing in my project. Her use of nature and the human form was what interested me about her work even though she’s using it in s different way I still get a strong connection of the human form and nature.
