The rope dogs are made from a combination of a welded steel armature and reclaimed gym ropes which have been deconstructed, dyed and washed. The initial form and position of the dog is created during the welding process, where the character and movement of the dog begins to take shape. The rope work is a meticulous process of hand tying and shaping to further enhance the dogs appearance and expression. Dominic’s passion for form, movement and balance along with his ability to embody subtle nuances of dogs, such as, a turn of the head, lift of the leg or flick of a tail, allows the viewer to connect with the work.
