Jo Addison examines our physical and emotional relationships with
the objects that surround us. The scale of her work often forces
the viewer to move in order to fully experience it, resulting in
an awareness of self and object. The nature of a thing is at the
core of our relationship to a thing.
‘Flash’ is an edition that has been cast from an original
hand modeled sculpture. The original work is one of the series ‘Pet-size’,
small-scale sculptures that explore the essence of everyday objects
and forms. Reminiscent of the fluorescent cardboard star shapes
that are used to draw attention to low priced items, ‘Flash’ can
be read as a representation of a small explosion or flash of light.
The edition is cast in plaster from the
original sculpture and hand painted with loose brush strokes
that bestow a more gestural or off-hand nature to the work than
their mass-produced ‘objectsake’.
The resulting sculpture has a feeling and sense of the real world
source, but stripped down to its elements. The reproduction of
an object that is used to promote the sale of objects turns the
tables on the traditional relationship, allowing the promotional
tool to act as promotion of, and for, itself, as well as being
the end product.
