Exciting new MOMA exhibition

I’m very excited about my upcoming solo exhibition ‘Anthropocene’ at MOMA Machynlleth. This has been a few months in the making, but nearly there now! The exhibition starts on 7th May – the private view is at midday on the 7th, and the exhibition runs until 13th August.
The exhibition features three huge figures – lying, kneeling and standing – made out of steel and wood. These have been made in response to the huge impact man has had on the earth – so much so that we are now entering a new epoch: ‘Anthropocene’.
Hopefully a thought-provoking exhibition – it’s been quite a journey creating it.

Sastrugi installation

Last month saw the installation, after some weeks of work, of ‘Sastrugi’, a marble carving based on ice forms seen on the Greenland ice cap. I was commissioned to make the piece as a celebration of a client’s silver wedding anniversary. The work is in white marble with silver veining and was successfully in their rear garden.

Needless to say I was relieved and happy that they were very pleased with the result and as luck would have it I have another commission as a consequence.
