‘ Lloyds Cut and Float‘ Site specific installation
He uses a physical and visual editing technique to redefine sculptural aesthetics of the cityscape. I find his work very visually engaging and exciting – I think its something about the bizarre composition and sharp edges that does it. The warping of space and a new look on something familiar that feels uncanny. He isolates fragments of architecture to highlight the inherent sculptural compositions they possess. 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 above as a method of framing or setting parameters he isolates material from another location, Ayling employs similar ideas to that of Robert Smithson in the late 1960’s.
