Construction (sculpture)

Information may change due to ongoing research.Glossary of Terms

This sculpture series takes its name from the material leftover in metal-cutting processes (the pieces that fall to the floor are called “drops”). Resembling a collection of scraps, Erin Shirreff’s Drop works are informal and, at times, even changeable compositions of cut-steel shapes. The forms of these fragments are in turn based on enlargements of cut-paper remnants.

Label from Erin Shirreff, January 23–May 8, 2016
