Knick Knack is a positioning of traditional figurative sculpture alongside personal sculptures found and made in my home. It is a quite dialogue between the past and present definition of sculpture that has shifted over time creating a hidden relationship and an alignment of traditional and new interpretations. Viewed side by side the two very different unconnected portrayals of sculpture become connected. Knick Knack realises an opportunity to experience both where jarring and engaging with each other they create a cultural narrative reflecting two very different eras in time. This series of diptychs not only depicts the dramatic change this medium has experienced but can also reflect changes in other areas of art where the recognisable have become unrecognisable.
