About the Artist:
Upritchard’s intuitive investigations into cultural heritage morph into sculptural forms that transcend cultures and gender and blend the past with the present to create a contemporaneity that is timeless. Upritchard incorporates different materials that are non-toxic and malleable as much as possible, which allow her to get up close and spend personal time with her material. One of the materials she uses is balata, which is a rubber from Brazil. The balata is put in a malleable state by warming it in hot water, after which it is placed in a tub with cold water. In this part of the process the artist has to work quickly and therefore her work has to be intuitive. Watercolor paintings accompany the process as studies.
Pedestals are important in Upritchard’s work as they define how a viewer sees it. She uses old furniture or custom made pedestals in rejection of the white cube pedestal. Her relationship with crafts, shown through her use of furniture, fabric, and jewelry, is important to her practice and celebrates crafts as an art form.
