A new home

This is Elizabeth Drury, or rather my interpretation of what Elizabeth Drury might have been like. She was the heroine in a poem by John Donne. Nearly life size it stands 1.74M high on a begonia coloured background.

Thanks to the services of The Redleaf Gallery today she officially takes up residence in a very fine apartment in the Kentish village of Groombridge. 

It is my aim to maintain a genuine respect for the human form, while making alterations that extend our perception of the subjects moment in time. I seek a language that communicates a physiology that we immediately identify with, where it becomes a genuine recognition of ourselves.
