Sculptor

“I want to go back to basics and work to develop new forms in clay. A phrase often heard recently is “In these unprecedented times…”. I want to take this moment to look back at other turning points in history, for example 1848, the year of revolutions. As a starting point I’ll take an image of a ragged-trousered standard bearer, waving his flag in an enormous circle. I want to carry on this
movement and make a sculpture built around a spiral. Perhaps it will be possible to repeat the figures, to pile on top of one another to create a swirling totem pole of revolutionary figures.”
