Pretty Maids

The work investigates scientific developments both positive and negative using imagery about new life but also the more sinister side of growing cells and structures to modify and transform both ourselves and the world around us. The large sculpture set on the steel platform suggests numerous test tube like elements containing liquid and flower like pieces, each one actually describing something else. They are colourful and appealing but are ultimately sinister in content. This sculpture is then juxtaposed with the more joyous art works of Hope and life which celebrate the breakthroughs in contemporary science and medicine.
