On a Pedestal

I have an exhibition coming up, at the Cetra Gallery on the Wirrall, and I’m happy to say that this month’s sculpture will be making its way up there as part of my body of work going there.

So…….here’s my sculpture, “On a Pedestal”:

On a Pedestal

What was I thinking?

As outlined in a previous post, I was intrigued by the concept of being ‘on a pedestal’. Who do we put there? What do we really know about them? What are we willing to do to get to an elevated position ourselves, what acrobatics do we perform? Why do we want to be up there? To be seen? Or to get a better view? Although the columns here are in a group, they are all solitary, nobody is helping the other, everybody is pre-occupied with themselves, their own fate, climb, life.

    Sabine, it’s fantastic, I just love how you’ve got movement in the piece yet it’s fixed. It’s incredible.

    Gorgeous Sabine, my mum lives on the Wirral, when’s the exhibition going to be?

    Thank you so much for all the lovely comments – this took so much longer than my usual work, it is heart-warming to have such a positive response, and really makes me look forward to the exhibition!
    Lisa, it’s the second and third week in October, but the work will stay there for a further three months afterwards :o ) I’m hoping to pop along, too, I won’t be able to resist seeing it all grown up!
