Soft sculpture is an integral part of Janet Currier’s practice and connects back to her two dimensional work. The sculptures reference the pink amorphic shapes that appear in her paintings. They also reference the underlying subject of the body. For Currier, the sculptures are meant to be suggestive of soft toy versions of microbes and germs.
This sculpture, entitled ‘Little Pink Sculpture’, 2020, is made with boiled wool and hollow fibre and is sewn by the artist.
The sculpture also references a larger sculptural installation that the artist made last year, ‘Pushback’. This is an installation consisting of 45 soft sculptures.
These works encourage interaction, further engaging the viewer.
