Friends Lost

Robyn Collins

Sandstone

Artwork Statement I studied sculpture at university and in the last 6 years I have returned to 3D art practice after spending many years working in textiles and printmaking. Over the past year I have joined a group of people who work in stone. This piece sculpture is carved from Donnybrook sandstone which is commonly used in construction, so, relatively hard to hand carve. I have depicted “Friends Lost” to cancer over the last couple of years – the sadness, the acceptance and the physical evidence of their illness.
