About The Artwork

In midwinter the sun does not rise in the sky but hovers over the Skiirid Mountain and Black Hill, local landmarks on the Herefordshire / Welsh borders, also known as The Marches. Both are clearly visible from my studio and the narrative is clear, Cast in solid bronze the hill shapes are expressed by the natural material finished with a translucent gold patination, Polished suns sit in a coloured bronze sky. The sculpture sits on an oxidised brass strip mounted on a stone composite base.

A somewhat reclusive artist living in deep country on the very edge of Herefordshire close to the Black Mountains of Wales.. I have been making bronze sculpture for many years and have recently turned back to painting and the making of 2D digital images.
