Those in the architecture world will have heard of the influential lady Zaha Hadid who is one of the most well known and respected architect in her field. So much so that her name is brand and she diversifies from architecture to sculpture, furniture and more, all with her fluid style and flowing lines.

When I started my university degree doing car design back in 2004 I had heard of her and liked her work but it hadn’t influenced me at that point, but it wasn’t long before her designs began to appear on my mood boards. A couple of years ago I took a trip down to her London showroom to see what her work was like in the flesh and it was just as impressive.

Needless to say the cost of Zaha’s work is simply astronomical and not even the rich can afford it. This stuff is the realm of super mega wealthy and not everyone is at that level of wealth. Sculpture in general is a product for the wealthy with budgets varying depend on location and significance.

Zaha Hadid style sculpture by Adam Christopher

Zaha’s style is almost blob like, (in a nice way), with random forms stretching out and separating to creating interesting shapes to adorn walls or surfaces. When the piece is functional then the same style applies but at various places the work flattens out to create usable surfaces but still has a loose random feel. What if, however, you like Zaha Hadid but want something a little sharper, more proportioned and less random? Perhaps something with symmetry?

My sculpture takes some inspiration from Zaha Hadid’s sculptural forms but links it with my knowledge of car design and the accompanying proportion play. Much of my work is personified and looks to echo parts of, or entire human forms. My liquid silk was a fluid shape inspired by the lines of a dress falling off a ladies bottom and flame, whilst clearly inspired by fire, also has head and hair like proportions.

If you like my work and want me to generate a proposal for a sculptural project you are considering then please get in touch. I do domestic and corporate art for both indoor and outdoor installation.
