Summertime

The theme for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition this year was Climate and, having made a number of new works for the Terra Mater exhibition at Tremenheere Sculpture Park I thought that I had the perfect piece. It seems that Alison Wilding RA the co-ordinator for this year thought so too because Planet Under Pressure was accepted and given a space in the Rotunda, Wohl Central Hall.

Planet Under Pressure

Imagine my delight when this piece sold before the exhibition has even opened to the public. Someone must share my feelings about poor old planet Earth! I am so happy that is has been bought and hope that it will spark many a conversation about this place that we call home.

Future Fossils Chapter 8 – The Pin.

I really appreciate the comments that people have sent me – largely privately – about this project. I think that the way we dispose of things we no longer have need of is a huge topic and one which needs to be addressed. By re-imagining our waste through the eyes of the archaeologists of the future, I hope that I have just made people stop and think.

Here is the link to the final chapter – but this is not the end. Keep watching for updates on a very exciting development later in the year!

What is this piece of metal? Why was it lying on a beach?
