These three bronze figures give me a huge amount of pleasure. They are beautifully crafted, wonderfully expressive and very tactile. Each time I pass and catch them in my eye I wonder what worldly issues they are discussing: perhaps world politics; life and its meaning; war and peace; feast and famine; or maybe Brexit and trump. I have collected pieces by this artist for many years. Each piece has significant meaning, not only to me, but also significant meaning about important things in life. Aileen M Stackhouse is one of those rare artists whose work can help us to see things differently and to change what we think.
