Sue Law
 

The piece ‘Prayer’ received ‘Highly Commended’ in the Bishop’s Prize 2010 at Norwich University College of the Arts. The theme for the prize was ‘Seasons of the Spirit’. The devout of many religions kneel to pray to their God.  Sue cast the knees of ten people from different religions. These fragile plaster casts, kneeling in a circle on the floor are spaced apart as if still occupied.  Together they kneel in prayer, each to their own God.

 

Sue Law has recently returned to the Cambridge area after moving to Norwich to complete her MA in Fine Art at Norwich University College of the Arts.
Sue sold her Restaurant in Cambridge in 2003 and has reveled in a change of career, studying at first in Cambridge then for her BA at Winchester School of Art.


The body and its relationship to the space that surrounds it inspire Sue’s sculpture.  Absence and Presence are recurrent themes within her work as these sculptures are the physical depiction of the negative space around the figure. She has recently used resin to make sculptures of stiletto shoes that include an impression of the wearer’s feet. Using Adobe Illustrator Sue has developed images that have been laser cut from Perspex to create a large installation describing the events of a ‘Girls Night Out’. This piece is a comment on the current binge drinking culture. She has also used the solid substantial physicality of bronze and the light delicacy of plaster bandage to describe the negative space around the exquisite curves of the figure.
