Sophie Ryder’s Monumental Sculptures

by Jane KenoyerPosted on

Artist Sophie Ryder’s current exhibition entitled Monumental lives up to it’s name. This exhibition features her wire sculptures of monumental size and is on view through September at the Royal West of England Academy in Bristol. Her sculptural forms, also referred to as wire drawings, are primarily metal skeletons constructed out of wire that are then covered with what the artist refers to as wire ‘pancakes’ to create the overall body of the sculpture. Ryder’s works are inspired by human, animal, and mythological figures and are created in a style that follows in the footsteps of folk art traditions.
