About The Artwork

Hand sculpted as a one-off design in a fine block of Portland Limestone, this is one of the last remaining available "Path to Peace" sculptures. Its full name is "Turning the Other Cheek". The opaque, grey-tan coloured limestone is a strong, solid stone, powerfully carved to show the moral strength required for forgiving. In a state of stability and balance this dynamic bust is finely carved from the front but the other side of the face has been left slightly unfinished and textured to symbolise the hurt and damage suffered. The expression of the face is of firm stoicism.

The ideas that I give form to are expressions of peace, change and aspiration; they convey my own optimism for the future and acceptance of the present. My objective is to express this by sculpture in a way that is ethereal yet grounded in reality. The dynamic forms are free flowing yet precise, subtle yet powerful and have a monumental character whatever their size. Essential to the evolution of my practice is a complete involvement in all the stages of creation, from sourcing marble, to drawing, to modelling and casting maquettes, to carving and to finishing. Use of the durable, translucent, pure white or sometimes delicately veined marbles of Carrara which are formed by countless tiny animals over millennia, correlates well with my vision of the fragility of individuals, the power of life and the permanence of love.
