'Fireball sculpture on Water (Big Steel Outdoor sculptures)' by Aragorn Dick-Read
Description: The Fire Ball has become Aragorn`s signature work of art. His distinctive design style, flowing lines and crisp Silhouetted Human Figures, combine magically when carved into a Perfect Spherical form and then brought to life with fire. By placing them on stands in the water a dramatic illusion is created of a ball of fire floating on the water. The fire gives life to the silhouetted forms and figures whilst the water offers an animated flaming reflection. The impact is impressive, elemental and captivates viewers.

Their seasonal appearance in the Atlantic Ocean below his house on the north side of Copper life size Whales for Beach, Under water or beach Commission Statues. Tortola is a true inspiration. Translating their awesome size to copper has long been a challenge. However, in 2010 the developer David Johnson commissioned Aragorn to sculpt a pod of 4 copper whales for the clubhouse of the BVI?s newest high-end residential development, Oil Nut Bay. The copper worked well for forming the large semi relief pieces, over a pipe armature. Aragorn then collaborated with Green VI Glass artist Jake Barron to make the whale eyes. The glass makes a great companion to the copper, and the deep mysterious gleam of the glass eyes gives the whales a very life like allure

"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."
