Sophie Coryndon, Fragment, UK, 2018
With Fragment, Sophie Coryndon masterfully explores the exquisite nature of honeycombs using cast acrylic polymer that has been gilded and highly patinated, preserving the fragility of its source material. Coryndon, who says that natural forms are always at the heart of her work, became interested in bees after reading about the rising detriment facing the insects around the world today. Employing centuries old techniques with innovative materials Coryndon manages to capture the jewelry-like delicacy of the abandoned “ghost-ship hives” in unique works of art.
As Coryndon works on a commission basis, custom works may be requested.
