Rachel Ducker wire sculpture
Eight Cuts review 2010
Bending wire into the spiked, twisted shapes of nature (the twisted heart at the mercy of its nature?), creating tree-like figures reminiscent of that Judderman ad, and trees that look half alive, as well as trees constructed from figures, Ducker’s brilliant work blurs the distinctions between animal and plant, natural and human construct, human and demonic. And as such it’s something we just love here at eight cuts gallery. . . . A subtle, breathtaking look at the dark core of our transient nature and the permanent aftershocks it leaves on the world. And as such, strangely reminiscent of Gunther Von Hagens’ plastination. Only hugely affordable.
