Nothing better for those hot days than a white, delicate, feminine top… carved from marble! This is the work of Edinburgh based artist Alasdair Thomson.
Here is, in Alaisdair’s own words, what those wonderful sculptures are about:
Through his current series of sculptures, Alasdair is exploring the way fabric hangs and folds, and is attempting to capture that lightness and gracefulness in stone. Named ‘The Identity Collection’, his recent sculptures are carved copies of garments donated by his friends and family. Seeking to capture the characters of those he invited to donate, he surrendered the control of the content of the series by allowing others to submit garments of their choosing for him to carve. The results are simple and understated, as well as timeless and nostalgic.
