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.
