Spirit

2014-2016

In these undulating sculptures, instead of keeping the mass of the stone it has been hollowed out to indicate a freer and more ethereal presence to the sculptures. This freedom is the essence of the carvings in this collection; they differ from the pods in the Creation series where the focus was in the sense of hidden life waiting to emerge; here the forms are freer and lighter to explain that what was previously hidden beneath the surface is now set free into visible rather than suggested life.  All of these sculptures are a direct expression of Christian faith.
