About the artwork

Installation

A large spiral fills the room at the James Hockey Gallery.  The scale and the small grains of offered no focus and created a slight dizziness. The endlessness of the swirling of the spiral revealed only when viewing the artwork from above on a balcony. Split peas have rich colours of yellow, ochre and cream – each grain a beautiful hemispheric shape. The work referenced ironic artworks such as Spiral Jetty and was created as part of Tine Bech’s Master degree in Sculpture.
