Together We Rise

Chichester Cathedral, 2022

Photo credit Paul Gonella 2a.jpeg

This exhibition emerged through lockdown zoom meetings with the Royal Society of Sculptors South West Group. What started as an idea became reality thanks to the hard work of the 25 artists involved, the staff at the Cathedral and curator Jacquiline Cresswell, who made sense of the show with her expert eye.

Titled "Three" these works were created during lockdown and tell a story of risk and acceptance. This trio, trinity or family can be read in many ways in a Cathedral setting although the overarching message is of strength in unity.

Supporting structure Holburne.jpg

It was a privilege to be part of the team delivering an extensive sculpture based educational project during Autumn 2021. As well as our clients making work, the freelancers, staff and volunteers were also invited to respond in 3D whilst considering our relationship with the museum.

"Supporting Structure"

This one off work was my response to the brief; based upon the supportive base of the inspiring Witcombe Cabinet it acts as a metaphor for the supportive nature of the Pathways to Wellbeing project. Incorporated into the ornamentation are acknowledgements of previous projects which include heads, coil pots, matisse slab pots and spoons.
