Lot Essay

Ranging from the amorphous to more clearly recognisable forms, Rebecca Warren’s sculptures create bold new figures. Her subject is one of the most traditional in art history, but she subverts the inherited clichés associated with the genre, redefining what sculpture should be or should look like. With their earthy, unfired and unfinished look, her works unveil a tension between thought and process, while creating a unique, new sculptural mode.
