Outdoor Sculpture at Maudslay
Intertwine past and present
Lay to rest old work and old ideas
Pray for the rebirth and renewal of the spirit
Originally named Rising Prayer, this piece was installed at the Carney Gallery at Regis College in 1995.
It had been wrapped in quilt in my studio since 1995, a silent and covered presence that would occasionally tug at me and say, I should be seen. Over the years, despite the covering, the paper faded and it was no longer gallery quality. When I finally decided to deal with it this past winter, I thought it should have a farewell at Maudlsay before its end, hopefully through burning.
