Leo Fitzmaurice: Litter

YSP Centre

Highlighting the excessive debris and waste discarded on a daily basis, Litter by Leo Fitzmaurice is a playful interpretation of rubbish bags with their handles tied in such a way that at a glance could be rabbits grazing.

Cast in bronze, and the first time Fitzmaurice has used this material, Litter has then been painted in white enamel, further confusing the appearance by altering the usual and expected surface of the traditional sculpting material. In addition, the use of this precious metal contradicts the form in which it takes.

Leo Fitzmaurice re-presents familiar objects in ways that make us reconsider our observations and assumptions. Many of his works are based around issues of consumerism and reference our everyday environment using found and discarded objects.
