Sport becomes Art series for Art at the Edge


This is the first working maquette for my swimmer. I've modelled the form from wire and plaster. It's a work in progress and I've already changed the shape for the mark 2 to make it less abstract. The piece draws a visual parallel between elite swimmers and marine life, like fish or dolphins. If you watch Olympic and Paralympic swimmers they seem to have a different relationship with the water to us ordinary mortals!
