Installed this summer near Cologne, Germany, my latest winged sculpture 'ICARUS' is made of bronzemesh, commissioned to adorn a grand entrance hall of a radiology center.
'ICARUS' has a wing span of 240 cm and in this image the sculpture is lit by sunlight to welcome visitors.
The installation was perfectly coordinated by Wiktor Borowski, Continuum Gallery, Königswinter.

Mesh Sculpture of a Dhow - Arabic ship - in hotel lobby Le Royal Meridien Dubai

Derived from Arabic dhow designs ‘AIRWAVE‘ is conceived as more than a sculptural rendition of a traditional vessel.

Fabricated in white painted stainless steel mesh, etherial, translucent, precariously poised, this over 6 metre height suspended composition suggests it is more the soul of a vessel than a vessel itself. Rather than in water it floats in air. Phantom-like, this sculpture seems mysteriously poised between the elements where horizon is blurred or lost, its ethos suggesting it exists not only where sea and sky optically merge but in a place where they physically merge, too and where there are neither one thing nor the other.

It’s an exploding apparition which draws attention to the fine line between liquid, air and that which is solid – water, mist, cloud, even ice. Its anti-gravitational composition ultimately expresses a vision and notion of invisible forces which surround us and which form part of everything which exists – electromagnetic and radio waves, light waves, wind and liquid shock waves as well as gravity and its counterpart relentlessly, persuasively, explosively shaping and forcing us to go with the flow.

Opera Opulence at Hanover Grange

Hanover Grange, Jamaica: Opera Opulence

Who would have guessed it?
That when Theresa and Andrew Roberts designed and built Hanover Grange, Montego Bay, Jamaica, they inadvertently incorporated an opera hall into the building to accompany my commissioned sculptures STATU I and II plus NUWDSTILL which can all be seen in this photo. Apparently, as another bonus, the acoustics are superb!
The mellifluous voice of the evening’s opera singers resonated through Hanover Grange. Read more about Hanover Grange, Jamaica, read the opera article in Jamaica Observer or watch the Opera Opulence video.
