Sculpture: 'Beyond the finishing line (Ripple stainless Steel Indoor Inside statue)' by Philip Thompson
Inspired by dropping a small pebble in still water, the ripples of ever widening rings vibrate out.
This sculpture was inspired by dropping a pebble into a calm stream, bands of ever widening rings vibrated out from that central impact. The Paralympic Games was that small pebble. Today there are an increasing number of athletes which compete for that ultimate prize. Through their energy, motivation and inspiration, the movement will keep increasing year by year. Created from polished stainless steel and bronze, ‘Beyond the Finishing Line’ captures and reflects light from its surrounding environment.

"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."

The Windy Day sculpture is absolutely beautiful! It’s even more spectacular than the photos I saw when I ordered. I couldn’t be happier with the art OR the service. Peter at ArtParkS is exceptional in his responsiveness to inquiries and in keeping clients updated on progress… plus he is so chipper, it’s a delight to work with him.
