Archetypal objects and the generic associations of such things are a key area
of interest for
Amy Hurst.  They are often welcomed as part of sculptures
that have functioned with transient movement and can resonate as systems
in themselves.   Paradoxes, play and the poetic are also important elements
that have been present – sometimes expressed through ridiculousness, or a
sense of childishness in the work.  As a result of materialistic associations
these odd and beguiling sculptural objects are volatile, yet manage to hold
their own space. There is some sort of play-off in these works that veers
between the pathetic and something more claustrophobic.
