Melanie Deegan

Melanie Deegan’s work is inspired by a lifelong interest in animals and the physical form combined with a fascination for texture and surface detail. Experimenting with different materials and techniques Melanie has developed a method of working that lends itself to the creation of dynamic physical designs. Using wire and steel to draw the image in 3D this sketch is then developed to add the texture and detail that will evolve into a finished sculpture. Often resulting in energetic and fragmented forms Melanie uses space to invite the viewer to engage, using their imagination to fill the void.
