Sculpture description:
Demolition Site Low Relief sculpture,
`holes` are a series of large-scale painted plaster reliefs depicting excavations in Athens. They invite us to look and yet at the same time may even repel us with images seemingly lacking in beauty or interest. The views they show are of places which exist beyond our contemporary gaze, hidden behind hoardings and sandwiched between tall buildings. They are generally inaccessible to the public and the alien environment holds no attraction for visitors. Consequently these places become like oases in the city. Places where the complexities of everyday living are stripped away to reveal the raw material of everything, space. Gaps between the buildings and voids in the earth expose nothingness. I am drawn to these places, which are like glitches in a computer program, momentary lapses in the ceaseless regeneration of the city, where we can see once more bare earth and open space, the exposed raw material from which all the rest of the visible creation around us has sprung.
Artist's comments:
You can almost literally get inside a relief in your mind. At least you can visualize how you would be able to exist, and move around within this `other` place. This powerful visual draw makes relief works highly approachable. It is also a fact that the viewer cannot in reality inhabit the space portrayed in a work of relief as they may do in a work of installation. But this does not diminish the potential for the relief to become associated with the viewer. On the contrary it may well be that the implication is all the more powerful given this actual barrier as this creates in the viewer the necessity to make a creative `leap of faith’, to undertake `a willing suspension of disbelief` in order to mentally inhabit the work.

Customer comment on 'Standing female (nude Contemporary Wall statue/decoration/sculpture)' by William Ashley-Norman
This lovely sculpture has been arrived without any problem. Now it is sitting in my house. We will move it to our new place for public showcase when the whole decoration has finished.

I will keep you update with our project soon. Thanks for your big help, anyway. We are still evaluating the whole space to see if we need to purchase one or two Nikki Taylor`s sculptures as well.
