A Series of 5 Sculptures, each a Limited Edition of 3 + 2 Artist's Proofs Cast in Bronze.
The Collection of all 5 of ‘The Eleanors’ is available Cast in Bronze for £70,000.
Named in honour of Eleanor of Aquitaine - one of the few Queens of England to be remembered by her own name rather than that of the King. Unusually for a woman of her time (1122- 1204), she was highly educated and used her considerable intellect and sexual power with ruthless intelligence and I wanted these sculptures to convey my sense of her which is timeless, contemplative and fun. It is my hope that their demeanor and stance convey the dignity, self-protection, bravery and the capacity for great love of this remarkable woman, wife of a King of France and a King of England and mother of two others, Richard the Lionheart and King John but always herself, Eleanor of Aquitaine.
'The Eleanors' are also available in Open Edition Cold Cast 'Glass' Resin £3,250.
Limited Edition of 5 + 2 Artist's Proofs Cast in Aluminium
I named this sculpture 'Elemental Woman' as she is cast in Aluminium which comes from Bauxite, the most abundant of earth's elements. She is partially free but still lightly anchored to the earth, travelling but grounded, graceful but strong and purposeful.
Sculptures are available to Order only and take approximately 10 weeks to Cast. All prices exclude delivery and handling charges. All heights are approximate.
A 60% non-refundable deposit is required when the Order is placed. The remaining balance plus delivery and handling charges is due prior to despatch.
'Glass' Resin and Charcoal on paper. Each a unique one off piece £900 each.
I made these works because I wanted to link the feeling of the ancient work of Pheidias to the modern world and to the discovered 'fragments' on an archaeological site.
I am very grateful to the Greek and Roman Department at the British Museum which gave me permission to work in charcoal in their galleries and these drawings are among my interpretations of Pheidias's Elgin Marbles and the warriors andgoddesses in the Mausoleum ofHalikarnassos (Room 21) which is kept extremely cold to preserve their delicate and beautiful pieces. The staff are only allowed to remain in the Halikarnassos room for short periods because of the cold and they were extremely considerate and took turnson duty thereby allowing me to complete my work albeit by the end of the process, with extremely cold hands!
The drawings are charcoal on paper which I have then torn and then cast in 'glass' resin which, when dry, I have smashed and then repoured, sometimes several times, in order to create their textured and broken surfaces.
