'Wing'
Made from reclaimed scaffolding planks and steel wire, materials are scarred by 'another life' and give fundamental character to this piece. This large, wood and steel structure takes inspiration from a bird’s wing. As we all become increasingly aware of the impact human activity has upon the natural world, the subtle ingenuity and fragility of a wing can remind us both of nature’s wonder, and of the necessity for sensitive co-existence. This piece serves as a metaphor for nature and the environment in the present day. Clinging on at one end it wraps itself around the trunk of the tree. At the other, it stretches out towards the viewer with its feathery finger, calling and challenging us all to reflect.
