Metaphysical Sculpture From Harvey Hood

“Since leaving the Royal College of Art my work has evolved from systems to metaphysical sculpture. Apart from public commissions my most recent work is made from cast iron, and is left in a rusted state. For many people rusted iron means spoiled iron, but in a metaphysical world the real state of this material unites the truth of the material with pure thought. My sculptures use components that we understand as real, yet display intentions of how you think of the relationship between them. The object is conceived by intentions without being concerned about what it looks like. For example in ‘From Guitar to Typewriter’ I have modeled the transformation of a guitar to a typewriter. Two objects mimicking each other. I am fascinated by the space between; whether it’s the sound between notes, the pause between word associations, or the unknown form between these objects”.
