The inspiration for my work comes from nature. The work is celebratory and deals with the reintegration of nature into life and art, and the place of ritual in everyday life.
Sandra Boreham is a sculptor based in Falmouth, Cornwall.
Her work is often wholly intuitive, concerned with a response to materials, with the poetry of form in space and the energy of ‘line’ and movement in 3 dimensions. Her focus is on the juxtaposition of soft and hard, inner and outer, natural and man made. Her work changed dramatically when she lived in the rainforest in Puerto Rico and in the Dominican Republic, where she started using wood, imaginatively combining it with bronze and perspex, although some ‘signatures’ like folds or ridging can be seen whatever the materials.
