WELLARD artist Sherry Paddon is preparing her sculpture Sly Village for the Sculpture by the Sea, Cottesloe exhibition.

A sculptor for 10 years, it is the first time Paddon has displayed her work in the exhibition.

She usually exhibits her pieces in a gallery and is excited about setting up her work on a grassed area at Cottesloe.

“I started conceptualising the piece in August and started production in December,” she said.

“It is a tent with a thousand soft toys I’ve gathered from op shops around Perth.

“It represents a home and a fictional village.

“I want the viewer to create a narrative about who lives in the space.”

Paddon enjoys relation work using foam, plaster and other tactile materials.

Sculpture by the Sea, Cottesloe is from March 2 to 9.
