2020, Sculpture: UV Print on acrylic, 80cm x 60cm x 20cm
‘Garden 3’ transfigures image texture data taken from photogrammetric scans of plants and flowers, re-rendering and meshing them together to create digitised abstractions. Using UV printing onto glass effect Perspex these textures are transplanted from their natural forms onto plastic, before being heated and manipulated by hand. Perspex is a recurring motif in Sian's work, and is representative of the screen. Here the distorted Perspex evokes curling lily-pad-like forms whilst reflecting the fluid nature of the screen that increasingly seeps out into the natural world.
