Artist David Rodford is endeavouring to synthesise his experience of a lifetime working in industrial design and manufacture, knowledge of materials and processes with the themes of his artistic practice. He takes consumer packaging for his source material and, using a process of casting, has created three-dimensional Plaster of Paris forms, making the hand-made from the machine-made.
The cast arrangements on display articulate a personal view of the world, a relationship with materials, making and sustainability.
“By taking the banal and ephemeral materials and by process transforming and memorialising them, I am prompting the viewer to both re-examine and revaluate their relationship with the source material”. David Rodford
Detritus represents the culmination of study with the Open College of Arts, culminating in this exhibition, which is his degree show.
