Flying

Place: Waterside Square, Portishead

Date: Installed June 2007

Description: A 9 meters high stainless steel curved base mounted on an angle with a marble resin figure flying from the top.

Funded by: Persimmons Special Projects

Commissioned by: Persimmons Special projects, North Somerset District Council and Continuum Arts

Agent: Continuum Arts

Notes: I wanted this sculpture to reflect the feel of the site, to give the sense of scale that being by the sea gives us, the feeling of the wind, and its effect. The impression of freedom and power the sea gives us both through its elements as well as being a point of travel and adventure. The angled stainless steel base and the figure flying from the top as if being blown in the wind, giving the sculpture a dynamics and feeling of energy and defying gravity.
