Mirrored Sculpture by Rob Mulholland

UK-based artist Rob Mulholland created a series of human sculptures in acrylic glass that are perfectly camouflaged in the environment that reflect the relationship between human beings and the natural environment.

This installation for a group exhibition at the Caol Ruadh Sculpture Park in Scotland titled 'Tide Flow - Time Flow', stand on the shores of the Kyles of Bute.

"As the tide ebbs and flows, the reflections of the sun and sea constantly alter the appearance of the mirrored stainless steel forms creating a kinetic surface that moves to the rhythm of the sea. The Cretaceous sea-forms, standing alongside the human figures, are a reference to our genetic past and ask us to consider our evolutionary journey thus far."

In this installation titled 'Levitate - Forest Felled', the mirrored figure seems like floating in mid-air. To achieve this mind-boggling effect, Mulholland used stainless steel wire, which is almost invisible to the eye, to hang the sculpture.

"The transition stage before new growth emerges and covers over the bare tree stumps can last for several years. It’s tempting to look at this as a destructive force, but in many ways it replicates nature's own cycle of growth and re-birth as within a few years the same area becomes anew with young samplings and wild plants that would struggle to grow in the once dense woodland."
