Merete Rasmussen works with abstract form, mainly in stoneware clay and bronze. The sculpted form can represent an idea of a captured movement, as a flowing form stretching or curling, or may derive from repeated natural forms or complex mathematical constructions.
For Cure3, Rasmussen has created a ceramic sculpture which achieves a sense of balance and harmony, combined with the energy and strength inherent in her signature use of strong colour. Enfolded Yellow, follows the artist's desire to represent a captured moment. The three-dimensional form curls around itself, where the inside and the outside are equally emphasised in a continuous surface. In the artist's own words, it is a "positive and negative form within a confined space". Vibrant, inviting yet self-contained, the sculpture is characterised by the "enthusiasm and sense of purpose" sought by the artist throughout her practice.
