Sculptor Penny Hardy combines discarded metal items to create three-dimensional figures based on her body’s own dimensions. Although physique has the same core reference, each sculpture is a unique creation based on the varied assortment of rusted gears, bolts, and screws used in its composition. In display, the works are either presented alone or in pairs of two, and express fundamental emotions through their relationship to the environment or each other.
“Through using my body frame as a canvas I wish to communicate some of these effects through the medium of sculpture,” she tells me. “By using discarded man-made metal items, which have been so skillfully made and used to create their own mechanical energy, I hope to extend their life in another form, re-use that energy for a different purpose and exchange their function to create a new entity.”
