Your Chickens April 2018 June 14, 2018

“Chickens are such characters, the challenge is to get that across in a cold metal (bronze). I guess what I mean by that is my ‘art’ is in bringing life to cold hard metal. But more than just life also character… It is close observation of my subject’s behaviour that really brings my pieces to life. I want to convey a sense of character, their spirit. This determines how I handle my material – in a loose fluid manner or in a tighter, more controlled way; with large sweeping strokes, or with smaller detail. Birds require a different approach… it’s about interpreting feather pattern through texture.”
