The New Art Centre Developing the larger concept of sculpture

Artist Statement of Paula Groves

I spent 4 years at art School then 14 years welding.

I am now embarking on developing my work to combine these two elements in the purest of ways.

My work is a piece of time. The time is now it would have gone, and been forgotten. It was the waste, the mistake, and the used, as the metal I work in comes from scrap bins, flea markets, boot fairs or is simply found. Enhancing the natural qualities of each individual piece, I then bringing them together to create a new whole.

For outside sculptures these are left untreated, the metal will continue to be effected by its surroundings and so will continue to evolve.

The outside art pieces are just beginning, I shall continue developing this concept and aim to get it seen country then worldwide.

Customer comment on 'Windy day (Small Woman in wind sculpture statues)' by Plamen Dimitrov
