The Missing Sin


Fiona Legg's latest exhibit is based on the concept of sin, representing notions of sin through sculpture. The exhibit culminates with Fiona's interpretation of what is missing from the Biblical record of sin, and it's connection to the current state of the world.

I chose to use necklaces as the vehicle to represent the sins, as they could be considered to be an unconscious expression of a concept (sin) pertaining to the wearer. Using necklaces also gave me license to develop objects of beauty incorporating symbolism, which is my preferred method of creation. I thoroughly enjoy using a wide variety of materials and techniques in my objects and this collection is no different – heavily based in fibre, I have used media such as Paverpol, stained leaf skeletons, feathers, and a large amount of needle felted foam cylinders to create the necklaces.

Exhibit runs May 27th - June 14th
