Sculpture: 'The Journey: Metaphors and Metamorphosis' by Deanna Pindell
A room-scaled environment (350 sq feet). 3 suspended "Conduit" (nest forms approx 5 ft tall) ; 5 suspended "Little Mothers" (nest forms approx 2 ft tall) ; 7 "Herd of Things" (3 to 5 feet long) ; 9 standing "Unseen Guests" (up to 7 feet tall) ; numerous bluefoam rock cairns.
The individual forms are extremely lightweight (from approx 1 pound to ten pounds maximum). The suspended forms spin on swivels with just a light touch. The beeswax encaustic finish is remarkably durable.
The transition of life into after-life can be a form of birth: gestation and genesis, linking the body to the spirit. The pathway between these abstracted forms (are they enormous nests, dancing ghosts?) creates a metaphor for this ultimate journey.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."

Wonderful website and user friendly gallery space. Excellent help and such a warm, welcoming and dedicated team. The sculpture, Mother and Child, by Perryn Butler, arrived on time and made a lovely present. Thank you Artparks.
