Internal is an exhibition of recent sculptures, made from paper, that explore the complex networks that are contained within our bodies. The artist delves beneath the skin to reveal the beauty and mystery of our internal world.

Using intricate pieces of cut paper and suspended in the beautiful setting of the Tiled Gallery, Singleton’s three-dimensional forms invites us to examine the internal complexity of the human body. The work asks us to consider how we connect to the outer human experience and the natural world. The installation is accompanied by a musical score created by composer Allan Stelmach, which further adds to the beauty and contemplative nature of this incredibly impactful work.

“Stripping back the walls between the inner and outer worlds to explore the boundaries between our physical bodies and our conscious mind. Beneath our skin the interconnected networks give life to flesh, somewhere within this matrix sits who we are.”

Andy Singleton is a Wakefield-based artist whose practice investigates the natural and man-made world through intricate paper cuttings, paper sculpture, hand-drawn illustrations and large-scale installations.

The installation initially took place in Wakefield’s Tileyard North and is now on show at The Art House.

Funding for the work has been provided by Wakefield Culture Grants.
