ForM Exhibition 2019
I have had to search harder for nature here
finding corners of myself among the rare.
I have seen what her absence truly looks like
and the devastation it harbours for me.

For this year's ForM exhibition my installation, entitled "Cuckoo", was selected to be a part of the June 2019 Exhibition in Bangor Castle's Walled Garden. There were over 40 sculptures in the exhibition this year and I felt really privileged to have been chosen to play a part.
As part of my fascination with oval forms "Cuckoo", while literal in its interpretation, was designed to reflect the fact that our gardens are not just places of recreation and relaxation, but also living, breathing ecosystems that play a part in the greater well being of the world around us. I also wanted it to recreate the feeling of almost childlike wonder I still feel when coming across one of nature's little secrets!
I am delighted to say that it has since winged its way to a new home in Scotland.
