My WILD ROSE is my most recent major piece, and it dominated my time in February and March. It is a full two metres tall and over a metre across, and contains fully-open flowers, opening blooms and buds; the leaves in contrasting colour catch the light, adding lustre and shape.
I know it’s not technically a ‘wild rose’ – which has a bush shape and smaller simpler flowers – but the spirit of this piece is so extravagant and vigorous, it seemed the right name.
I love the sense of depth – you really need to walk around the sculpture to appreciate the this and the open space within.
As with all my work, all the colour comes from heating and quenching the copper – no chemicals or additives are used, except lacquer to preserve the colours.
