Neil Ayling

Ayling defines sculptural aesthetics of the cityscape through a visual and physical editing process. Fragments of architecture are isolated to highlight the inherent sculptural compositions they possess.

The idea of the fragment is central to the work; it acts as both a snap shot of the whole and occupies a given space dislocated from the whole. Exploring the image in this way enables Ayling to edit and manipulate imagery through a process of cutting and folding.

Using a two-dimensional image, this process can create a new three-dimensional form, one that finds its own presence in space, and in the physical world. By using the gallery as a method of framing or setting parameters to isolate material from another location, Ayling employs similar ideas to that of Robert Smithson in the late 1960′s.
