Ascorbic continues Marcus’ interest in building modular sculptures from everyday found objects. In Ascorbic, the humble lemon squeezer is enlarged, duplicated in vitreous porcelain, and joined to produce a form that combines the aesthetics of both the natural and the industrial worlds. The original object is recognisable, though transformed in the final sculpture. Ascorbic is also reminiscent of anemone, seeds and pods, and things found along the shore. UAP is proud to have funded the first edition of this work.
Donna Marcus is represented by Gallery Sally Dan-Cuthbert, Sydney.
