Still,Gather, Sway

We’ve livened up our entrance stair this week, thanks to Sculpture Placement Group and artist Corrie Thomson, who is kindly allowing us to display her piece Still, Gather, Sway.

Corrie Thomson is an artist living and working in Glasgow, who graduated in 2017 with a BA(Hons) in Fine Art at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, Dundee. Corrie’s practice is revolves around the suggestive nature of the sculptural object and the work is heavily informed by architecture, furniture, and the design and engineering of everyday objects. She questions how things are made and in turn works closely with processes of construction, fabrication and model-making. Within her constructions or assemblages, Corrie often explores how a manipulation of scale and the positioning of objects or materials within a sculpture or sculptural scenario can may begin to express an oblique narrative.

Still, Gather, Sway, one of the first sculptures ever made by the artist. The work is composed of plywood, steel rod, waxed string and stone. By going through the processes of bending, cutting, sanding, drilling, tieing and positioning, the making of the object became a way to test the limits of these materials. The work is a playful exploration of tension, balance and movement. Corrie seeks to create an atmosphere of uncertainty: an object which appears fully charged and laden with potential, but equally possesses a sense of stillness.
