Warrior One

bronze

h: 27 w: 4 d: 9 (cms).

These little horsemen sprang from a series of drawings I did over Lockdown.  Warriors, cut from the same stuff as Don Quixote, mostly riding over massive, imaginary landscapes in front of massive empty skies.  The pictures sometimes depict villages or homes, but the Warrior is always outside these spaces, an outsider looking in.

The lonely figures say something about how vital my imagination was in coping with a situation where I was physically constrained, since my sanity seemed to depend on being able to escape into these dreamworlds.  But the Warrior is also a response to a persistant feeling that we are all being called to respond radically in the face of environmental catastrophe, however small we feel our impact can be.

This is a Mother and Child piece that I finished after the birth of my son.  I enjoy this piece because it captures the unimaginable intimacy between a parent and a baby, the connection right up there at the top of the sculpture, where the baby's hand explores the mother's face.  

But the piece is also quite fierce and angular, with a strong twist upwards and back over the hip.  The relationship is intense and entire and causes the mother's whole focus to shift from the outside world to the baby in her arms.  I find myself wondering what will happen when her focus shifts again, back to the world around her.
