Diane Maclean


Thresholds – Solo Exhibition in Chichester Cathedral

June 22 – September 30 2018

"Thresholds is an exhibition that allows us to consider the purpose of a place like Chichester Cathedral as a space to reflect and discuss the possibilities of the encounter that we might find when we cross over a threshold.

Diane Maclean’s sculptures encapsulate the idea of liminality, a space between, a period of transition and a moving beyond. She creates sanctuaries and paths that lead us to reflect on this architectural space and what churches present in today’s world.

Her sculptures are a response to a place, a theme or an idea. Working on a scale commensurate with the setting, she combines reflective surfaces and open structures to create strong visual connections to the context of the surroundings." Jacquiline Cresswell, Curator

Renewal 2017

A stainless steel sculpture in which is entwined a forged and painted snake, gives the classical medical symbol of Asclepius’ Staff a contemporary interpretation. Commissioned for the new Centre for Medicine at University of Leicester, the sculpture is currently being displayed at Highcross to help raise awareness and funds for the project which will be completed in the autumn.
