'For Instance'

Font Size: AAA

A shift in the focus of sculptural form in James Dinerstein’s portfolio of work is ushered in by' For Instance', where artistic investigation of the cupping and shaping of space urged the opening up of the form from its previously compact state. However, the sculpture does not stray from the artist’s body of work in its supple use of clay as a plastic medium. The smoothly formed elements of the sculpture cleave their way through space and create a sense of unease through their precarious placement. Allowing the horizontal to reach out and up for the vertical and then to envelop it, Dinerstein has found a new set of sculptural problems to explore. He has stated, “It was in 'For Instance', that this tense, highly compressed space became all but literally uncoiled and radically opened out.”
