Cast iron, florist's foam bricks, red oil sand, PVA and found plastic.

"Lana Locke’s innovative use of materials draws you into her piece ‘Hand and Bricks’ (2012). Her bricks are florist foam bricks, gnawed into a submissive collapse, and their dissolving forms and colours lead you to imagine tragi-comically, the collapse of a florists, before broader resonances take over. Bricks spilled by collapsing buildings, toppled by earthquakes or bombs, seem pervasive in the news... It is Locke’s use of the hand that really develops her piece – the iconographic spacing of the fingers is at once superhuman and heroic, and theatrically desperate. El Greco built vast tapestries of meaning into subtle variations of hands, and Locke’s piece allows us to move in and out of the work’s potential, drawing in both overt social and artistic commentaries and simultaneously evading them and leaving us to wonder." - Reviewed by The Page for Creekside Open 2013 Read less
