Level the Field

Corten steel
Private collection

The sculptures are hand-cut in weatherproof Corten steel. The leaves are depicting ivy, the everlasting and ever growing, a historical synonym for life and a recurring theme in my work. It is also called Lovestone for its habit of hugging stone. On the other hand it is perceived as a serious invasive species and also as a horticultural weed; a good example for life itself and its challenges. The work was inspired by observation of the late summer when hay bales roam the Scottish landscape.
