Continuous, 2011 – Lorna Pridmore


Recently exhibited at Hackney Downs Studios as part of ‘Once Upon in Wintertime’ group exhibition. Aptly titled ‘Continuous’, Lorna Pridmore cleverly and painstakingly used drawing pins to create this extraordinary piece. Repetitively applied, turning a collection of ordinary objects into a spectacular sculpture, the drawing pins resemble a serpent’s scales, which relates to one of the artist’s inspirations – the Ouroboros, ‘an ancient symbol depicting a serpent or dragon eating its own tail’

LORNA PRIDMORE’s kirby grips

Lorna Pridmore has recently unveiled her new artwork – a marvelous sculpture made entirely of kirby grips – at the Tower Hamlets Spring Open exhibition. She got hold of over 24 thousand hair grips and decided to create something otherworldly. Mysterious and beautiful, fragile-looking yet surprisingly sturdy, the untitled piece was constructed without the use of any adhesives or any fastenings, which makes it even more fantastic.

TOWER HAMLETS SPRING OPEN in the Mile End Art Pavilion until Saturday 9th April (2011).


Using ordinary materials, Lorna Pridmore surely knows how to create unusual sculptural objects, applying repetitive technique until its point of resistance. I visited her studio space to see what she is currently working on and photographed her space. There you will find  vintage bric-a-brac, rusty industrial tools and adorable little objects. I must say, I am very excited with her new project and am looking forward to seeing the finished product.
