The Wild Things Are is a collection of sculptures whose ambiguous forms and reflective surface present elusive representations of British Woodland creatures. The sculptures are installed in the ancient woodland at Broom Hill Sculpture Gardens in Barnstaple as part of The National Sculpture Prize 2019 hosted there since 2008. The work questions the possible loss of these earthbound creatures in relation to the current acceleration of climate change and huge deforestation occurring all over the globe. These distorted holograms act as ghost of the actual beings, as a description of consciousness which can no longer take a living form. A notion to suggest the desire to become.

Winner of National Sculpture Prize 2019.
