Rope is an interesting medium to work with – I’ve seen it described as being similar to a line when drawing . Having endless possibilities. Working with the rigidity and natural bend of this particular nylon rope, I played around with it and shaped it into an abstract Delicious monster leaf. I liked the way the shape echoes & exaggerates the outline and the holes of the natural leaf – funnily enough the plant is also called the Swiss Cheese plant (according to wikipedia).
The Rope Delicious Monster also explores the idea of how ‘nature always follows the easiest route’ and shapes itself effortlessly.
