LET IT SHINE

IMG_1258.JPGBronze I made at Pelham Hall Sculpture Studio, (Morley College) Lambeth Walk in London.

As I developed the piece, based on a dream featuring strange, equine creatures, I become aware of how I am slightly repelled by the idea of a horse’s mouth and nose parts perhaps through conditioning or genetic imprinting – I subconsciously judge them to be unclean in some way. This led me to ponder how normally, I turn away from what I perceive to be ‘unpleasant’ but if I accept my judgement as just another ‘thought-form’ – instead of being enslaved by it, I’m set free to perceive true beauty in everything

I found the development of the idea and the whole foundry experience to be an amazing metaphor revealing the great beauty of life and for me, the end result encapsulates that insight.
