Description

Derrick Piens’ current studio practice considers the continuous process of transformation that all materials and objects undergo throughout time. Working at a variety of scales, his sculptures are amorphous and abstract, alluding to a perpetual state of change. Using geometry to create a geomorphic form, ‘Dissipate Like a Cloud or Smoke or Wintery Breath’ captures the fleeting moment when an expanding cloud or plume of smoke takes on an anthropomorphic shape. This colourful and vibrant sculpture aims to give a sense of lightness, vitality and energy. As an artist, Derrick is most interested in the evocative qualities of colour and their ability to communicate and enrich the viewer’s understanding of works of art.
