Scrap metal and discarded objects recycled into lifelike animal sculptures by Barbara Franc

London-Based artist Barbara Franc transforms scrap metal and discarded objects recycled into incredible lifelike animal sculptures. Her pieces explore thematics such as nineteenth-century animal engravings; domesticated animals and our dependence on them; and movement of racing animals such as horses and dogs, skeletal structures both organic and inorganic.

I have always been fascinated by the shapes and sculptural forms of animals, they present a never-ending source of inspiration to me. I try to capture a feeling of their movement and presence in my sculpture. For this, I use wire and other materials in a way that suggests drawing in three dimensions. This allows me greater freedom to add changes whenever I want during the construction to keep the feeling fluid and to reflect the diversity of movement and form. I increasingly use recycled and discarded materials as I enjoy the challenge of transforming something with a past history into something new and exciting.
