‘Existence’ is a series of six wooden frames painted in a monochromatic gradient, contrasting finally in red, with one-line continuous wire figures within and atop the frames. Each is connected by a single red waxed string, all mounted on a long piece of treated pine wood. The sculpture is an exploration of the inherent structure of society in its ability to confine individuals with the potential to be free, into frames that inhibit their potential to be themselves.
Although the figures portrayed in the transformation of ‘Existence’ are that with features of a woman, the piece aims to make a greater commentary on the restrictions imposed by society and the self that prevent the growth that allows people to reach freedom and joy. Such potential is implied to be within a person since conception, with red string connecting the six figures, a show of the transformation, the upward trend of progress and the evident potential to reach freedom, represented by the colour red.
