Description

This 'Guitar' is woven natural fibre sculpture. The work reflects Kate Campbell-Pope’s connection to the body and her natural environment. Roots extend from the base of the guitar, the sound hole becomes the centre of a flower, and the neck evolves into a human hand holding a musical note in its palm, forming a light-hearted, fun representation of the relationship between the body, the earth and music.
