Mediums Used

Dilys Jackson has travelled and worked in Europe, America, Canada, United Arab Emirates, Scandinavian and Australia. She has undertaken commissions and residencies in the UK and Canada and has exhibited in Wales England and Sweden.

My work derives from the kinaesthetic relationship that I experience between natural forms and those of the human body. My perception of shape, mass and process in the world around me is arrived at not only through my eyes, but also through the sensation of myself in space. I mainly use metal and stone to realise these relationships. These materials have an intrinsic weight and presence through which I explore both their mass and internal space, but also the shapes that derive from the perceived processes of growth or movement which appear to have formed them. In my drawings I tear paper and pigments as sculptural elements. The works have formal elements of both singularity and division by which I seek to express the dynamic balance between the pressure of the weight of the whole and the release of pressure between parts.
