OPEN – JOURNEY – Victoria May Gosling – Southampton City Art Gallery

Victoria May Gosling

Find Beauty Where You Can

Resin and Glass

Countless journeys across the ocean, myriad personal stories – all must have left something behind for us to find.  When creating this piece I tried to think about the possessions that people may have lost on their way, some important and some just the normal debris of travel. The story of centuries of migrations sits at the bottom of the seas. Although another narrative could be sought, that of plastics and pollution of the ocean, mainly this sculpture is designed to be fun and to play with the different forms water and light can take. I used colour for depth, and moulded resin on to glass to create shimmery waves, air bubbles and ripples. I hope you want to jump right in!
