Posturing is the overall title for a collection of three new sculptures and one photographic work by the Edinburgh based artist Rachel Adams. It is also the individual title of one of her sculptures; a work which takes its inspiration in structure from Antonio Canova’s neo-classical marble depiction of The Three Graces. Adams’ version is produced with crumpled painted waxed paper; carefully standing, it is positioned atop a tie dyed fabric covered plinth. The plinth’s colours, and the dappled effect created by the tie dye process, together produce a finish which bears a resemblance to certain types of marble.
Posturing is part of the Scultpure Show, Modern One, Scottish National Gallery of Modern art on till 24th June 2012.
