To be as light as the sky

Resin fibreglass


How do we relearn the lightness of being when humanity weighs so heavily on the earth.  

To be as light as the sky is an antidote to the war monument. Usually a man containing the power of the horse. Instead the horse is unbridled. The rider follows the beast. This is a monument to the knowledge of animals, to recognise our abuse of power over other creatures that we cohabit the earth with. The bird in this piece represents a mascot, a wild friend, a spirit, a familiar, a demon. Corvid species have both good fortune and bad luck, long associated with magic mystery and folklore, they are a symbol of potential, of something about to happen.
