Brace by Miles Lowry
“The torso is the house of the heart. In archaeology it is also what is left behind. Having endured the onslaught of time the torso becomes an unwitting symbol of the ancient world. An incomplete figure. In contemporary times the fragmented figure appeals both to those who seek antiquity and those who arrive with new eyes. Here the body acts as a mirror. Through the understanding of our own vulnerabilities and desires the sculptures made of fibre and paint become something else, something for the heart and mind. With this work I consider the torso as a potent symbol of our times, revealing its histories yet becoming the sensuous vulnerable housing we are given to embody each day."
