'in a moment'

‘in a moment’

Terracotta/ iron oxide/gold and copper patina
h.77cm x w.44cm

This first work expresses a sense of beginning. A laying down of a foundation to enter into… to be and not avoid… a state of gathering together… of understanding beginnings and endings and consequences…and finally it explores a preparedness to express the abstract or unrecognised as an external experience for others to share and perhaps validate.
The figure is still and focussed. The three birds hover above and represent opportunity.
They are knowledge and are always there…but they wait.
The figure is suspended, listening and preparing.
The hands are still but ready. The figure is there ’in a moment’.

Thanks Jay....yes 'poised' is a good word! Before I begin a new series I always like to clean everything out of my work space to give respect to what ever might 'fly in' to my imagination and then in that 'poised' state start to enjoy the ride.
