British sculptor Anna Gillespie uses the body as a template, creating human figures that appear to be subsumed in the material from which they are made. Ranging from small-scale to life-size, Gillespie’s sculptures emerge from conventional materials like bronze and plaster and, sometimes, more resourceful items such as acorns and beech nuts. Her figures appear prone to the elements. Some appear to be blown away by the wind or covered creeping plant life as if they have become part of nature, returning to their origin. Take a look at some of her work below, images courtesy of Anna Gillespie.
