About the work :

Rising (2) is a work by British artist Patricia Volk. 

Patricia Volk's abstract sculptures are born from the unique combination of two elements, namely form and colour. The artist begins her creative process by cutting pieces of clay, her favourite material, in search of the perfect line, which for her is a simple and dynamic line. The pieces are then fired and assembled to construct the final shape of the sculpture. For this artwork, the artist mounted the fired clay on a glass base. She explains: “The is no pre-thought at all, it either works or it does not. There is such simplicity in a good line that it is completely underestimated, because it is so incredibly difficult […] but so aesthetically pleasing.”

Drawing inspiration from the American tradition of painted fired clay, Patricia paints her sculptures with acrylic paint, choosing the combination of colours intuitively and subjectively, but at the same time with great consideration. The intense and vibrant colours used emphasise the shapes of the sculpture, the balances and contrasts between power and fragility, stability and precariousness, heaviness and lightness. They can suggest different ideas to the viewer, such as tranquillity, conflict or the sense of movement.

Patricia Volk is a member of the Royal Society of Sculptors (FRSS), an old English organisation promoting excellence in sculpture, and an Academician of the Royal West of England Academy (RWA). Her work was recently featured in the book "50 Women Sculptors", alongside that of very famous artists such as Camille Claudel, Barbara Hepworth, Niki de Saint Phalle and Louise Bourgeois.
