Horrible Sweet – Lydia Dekker

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket " Horrible and sweet are complete opposites, they represent the grey area in my work. A border between two ore more things in which the mystery lies. My sculptures are poetic, surreal figures and objects. The clean tactile and fresh use of colour gives the works an image of fun and innocence yet the expression of the works contain deeper emotions. Each individual sculpture embodies different narratives, meanings and personalities. The figurative works are sensitively sculpted, smooth and focused; they are human, mythical, bestiary and have toy characteristics. The figures contain a mix of subtle traces of mythology, pop culture, Japanese pop culture and contemporary design. They are neither hilarious nor serious, existing on the edge of fantasy and fine art. They are surreal but subdued hybrids of human and animal personalities..." - Lydia Dekker Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket
