Galvanized Wire Woven into Animal Sculptures by Kendra Haste
UK artistKendra Haste Workis with layers of painted galvanized wire atop steel frames creates almost real creatures. “the sense of movement and life, of contour and volume, the contrasts of weight and lightness, of solidity and transparency—values that I find in my natural subjects.” she says. She continues about her work with animals:
What interests me most about studying animals is identifying the spirit and character of the individual creatures. I try to create a sense of the living, breathing subject in a static 3D form, attempting to convey the emotional essence without indulging in the sentimental or anthropomorphic.
