Lionel Bawden’s Colored Pencil Sculptures

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Australian artist Lionel Bawden creates amorphous sculptures utilizing hexagonal colored pencils as his primary building blocks. The pencils act as tiny units of color that Bawden arranges in diamond shapes that appear to melt, fluctuate and change. Metaphors for the body, these figures speak to intimate emotions. “Bawden’s sculptural works harness landscape as a stand-in for the body, personal themes of desire, longing and interconnection become abstracted in a generative process to create form,” his website explains. In the sculptures with multiple shapes next to one another, their body language, so to speak, becomes telling to the outside observer. Take a look at some images of the sculptures courtesy of Lionel Bawden below.
