Maureen Scott’s sculptures are drawings of lines in wire, paper, pen, pencil; and lines drawn from shadows and reflections. It is about light, and chasing the shadow line, the eyes being deceived by light. Our perception of what we see changes in a flicker of light. Lines disappear and re-emerge; solid lines float away and change direction. Shapes and forms emerge with different angles. Each viewer experiencing their own personal observations.
Looking closely at contour lines on cliff faces, the lines and shapes made with layers of rock, and the lines made by crags and cracks on the Nottingham Castle cliffs. Wire bends into the cracks and crevices of the rock, it flows over boulders in a continuous line, emphasising basic shapes. Solid hard rock faces become linear, and moving with light reflections and shadows.
