Harvest Figures

Harvest Figures

The Harvest Figures were carved from a massive windblown Beech tree that had fallen on the edge of a Sussex wheat field. These lattice carvings are the beginning of a twenty year fascination with this layering technique and with the idea of capturing whatever surrounded the forms within the work, a method of holding landscape inside the object. Exhibited in 1994. Lewes Castle, Sussex, UK.
