Swifts 2022 was originally commissioned for the new Dyson Cancer Centre at the NHS Royal United Hospitals (RUH), Bath. This bronze sculpture depicts a larger than life size pair of swifts in flight, mounted on a limestone plinth.

In May, the arrival of this migrant bird from Africa heralds the start of the British summer. As such, they are seen as a symbol of hope and joy. The swift spends most of its life on the wing, migrating 3,400 miles twice a year. It rarely touches the ground, sleeping, eating, and even mating in the air. Superb flyers, they can reach an impressive top speed of 69mph.

In this sculpture, Hamish has captured the very essence of the swift and the sense of freedom it represents – a real celebration of life.

Sculpture in the Making

“I want to thank Hamish for his Art. I am a Cancer Research nurse working in Bristol. The past few years have been such a hard time for all of us around the world, and working in healthcare during this time has been a real trauma. What has helped me daily is my love of art and artists, and your work Hamish has been inspirational and enabled me to keep looking to the future for hope, whilst also driving me to joyful tears. So, thank you. Keep Art working for the future.”

(Stephen Lang RN, Lead Research Nurse)
