RICHARD STONE

Richard Stone‘s sculptural works:

“Described as elegantly restrained, Stone’s works oscillates in scale from the intimate to the monumental and resonate with a range of influences from the art historical to the popular cultural and culturally referential.
Such works have included figures engulfed in ghostly auras of smooth amorphous wax, erased landscapes, carpets unraveled and suspended, assemblages of earth, flowers, salt and other delicate ephemera and performative works.
Both heroic and flawed in aim, these works evoke physical and conceptual states of metamorphosis and flux where sharp contrasts of light and dark are interwoven with grainy expressions of solitude and stasis.”

Ghost Birds

http://www.greenpeace.org.nz/oiloncanvas/ ‘Like a countless assembly of small ghostly shadows urging us to do better’ – The oil prints featured in this exhibition were made with imprints of the body of a little blue penguin dipped in the oil that killed it spilled by the Rena oil spill in the bay of Plenty. It and the other bird featured in the Oil on Canvas’ exhibition are just two of an estimated 20,000 birds killed after the shipwrecked Rena spilled 350 tonnes of oil into the Bay of Plenty. It is hoped that the work can serve as a memorial to the creatures that lost their lives and as a stark warning against the far greater risk posed by deep sea oil drilling in NZ waters.
