EXHIBITIONS    ARIELLA FRIEND: Floating

02.03.14 to 29.03.14

Floating is a site specific installation made from cellotape and plastic bags.

By combining the traditional techniques of tying, knotting, wrapping, sticking and painting with non traditional artist materials, these translucent sculptural forms create a fragile and ethereal environment that alludes to consumerism and a culture of disposability.

Using materials that are often untidy in appearance and redeeming them into carefully crafted objects is a pleasurable part of my process, altering prior cast offs into something of value and beauty, an act of optimism. Through a visual language of transparency and texture I create bold, multi layered compositions that are contemplative and dynamic.
