Against the Wind 1997
Bronze Resin 32 x 22 x 12 cm – £1350
With this figure, I focus on one simple posture: straining against the wind, with the upper body bent forward, and her hair blown back.
Thus, this posture is a metaphor of the effort and determination involved in resisting and fighting difficult circumstances: to sail bravely, stubbornly or foolishly against the wind. The strength needed for that attitude in life derives from being well grounded, and connected to the earth, just like this short-legged woman.
