Creep

2020

Materials: Beeswax and mixed media

In Creep, Townsend looks intimately at her own relationship with nature, through a series of common daisies, hand sculpted from beeswax and arranged in the form of a chain necklace. The flowers are worn close around the throat and the roots twine downwards until they touch a long surgical scar which runs the length of the artist’s spine. The hyper realist sculpture carries interwoven narratives of perfection, imperfection, beauty and value. It speaks of the power of the natural world, our attempt to manipulate it and its ability to heal us. 

Creep was represented by Ruup & Form in ‘Disobedient’ at London Craft Week 2021, 67 York Street, Marylebone, London.
