Zuza Mengham is a London-based Artist. Rooted in a preoccupation with abstracted form, materials and their stories, her work explores the join between traditional crafts and new methods of making. The use and manipulation of materials within her work invites questions about the ways in which they are synthesised. Formal arrangements are put under pressure, combining elements that might be expected to oppose one another, so that new associations can materialize. Often sculptural work serves to create a sensorial tie or anchor to ideas of landscape, spaces and geologies, both actual and forged. The results have the effect of compacted narratives, merging natural and synthetic elements, both historical and contemporary.
