Stewart Gough‘s sculptures are assemblages of various mass-produced plastic objects
fixed together as though Lego bricks; Dinner plates and food containers are held
amongst pipe systems and machine parts, creating a distinct materially–merged–down
space for a positively ironic sculptural investigation.
Gough’s sculptures are temporary structures, referencing British Utopian Architecture
of the 1960’s, often implying an integrated mode of transport, appearing decamped in
operation as sculptural event. Through a deliberate use of size, scale, form, and
graphical colour these works command phenomenal presence, and playfully slip
between the grounding utility of their constituent parts and fantastic flight through
sculptural and architectural ideology.
