Bheag air Beag (little by little)
Bheag air Beag (little by little ) 2013 -132 mdf panels painted on both sides total area measuring 72sqm. Bheag air Beag represents both the area of the human lung and a lichen called Tree Lungwort which only occurs on the Scottish west coast. The work was the culmination of an RSA Residency in 2012 in Sabhal Mòr Ostaig on the Isle of Skye where I began to learn Scottish Gaelic. It considered the action of breathing. The panels were turned in sequence once an hour each day to echo inhalation/exhalation.
Bronze Angel With Gold Leaf
I am interested in the processes of creativity, the completeness of the connection between hand and eye fascinates me. In 1998 I began experimenting with modelling wax to create small scale angels and did not intend to make a ‘finished’ piece . I was more interested in the action of my hands on the wax so initially I made short films documenting their changing forms. Their small size was particularly significant since they could be held within the hand. The paradox of being able to hold a divine being who possessed the ability to fly in my hand was appealing.
