A Sian Torrington show often takes on the space of the gallery. The work questions and challenges the integrity of the space; building up and around existing architectural structures. Often sculptures are exuberant, rebellious creating their own form of building. Or they may be supportive, appreciative; pointing out the parts of a building that are doing that hard work and maintenance.
