Plinths

Alex Wood’s plinths, tower above the viewer creating a sense of jeopardy and instability. The feeling of precariousness that the sculptures create is heightened by the imminent threat of collapse. Exploring the relationships of monumentality and the un-monumental.

Alex combines low-fi materials which include timber, wax, ceramic and discarded debris in his sculptures. Towering buildings and architecture can appear to teeter on the brink. Alex pushes this feeling of precariousness to it’s limit with his sculptures.
