Artist Statement

Siobhan Rimmer

The piece was inspired by the David Bowie exhibition and based on a jumpsuit by Yamamoto. I used glass and lead - I combined different shades and textures for the swirling shape and then incorporated other symbols associated with Bowie into the frame. I wanted to ensure that there was sufficient glass showing between the lead lines which influenced the size of the piece. I wanted to use lead and glass in a modern design.
