BIO:  Dervella McNee


In my earlier work such as Spine, I was preoccupied with the harmony and balance of skeletal structures and how, having been revealed, they interact with space. For me, this symbolises ‘being’ devoid of all artifice and laid bare in its uniqueness. Paradoxically, I focus on the surface, using patina, the surface rendering technique, to call attention to the potential of materiality for illusion, which transcends the coldness and hardness of metals.
