Lorraine & Paul Mangan

 

Paul and Lorraine are a married couple whose home had recently been subjected to a flood. For their chosen objects they selected a pair of black glass candle holders (Lorraine) and a carved wooden eagle from Sierra Leone (Paul) - distinctly different objects in their materials, form and function. The artwork made for Paul and Lorraine is an amalgam (or "marriage") of two materials, wax and carbon, blended into a new composite and cast into a single form. The materials refer to the elemental qualities, inherent or suggested, in Paul and Lorraine's chosen objects: earth, air and fire. The bowl form appears to move upwards from dark to light and is impervious to water.
