Alison Wilding

"Wilding belongs to a generation of sculptors whose work was seen, in the early 1980s, as being a notable departure from earlier practice. Her sculptures often consist of two separate elements, which suggest opposites such as positivenegative, male-female, light-dark. She sets up those contrasts with a wide range of different materials, including copper, wood, beeswax, lead, galvanized steel, transparent plastics, silk, fossils, rubber and paints."
