The Thinking Behind The Work ...
'G8 ... THIS IS NO HEAVEN ...'
This sculpture is an environmental statement.
The work is depicting a baby, symbolic of the future generation,
blindfolded and holding the burnt-out stump of a tree also in the form of a candle. My idea behind this work is to show how innocent the future generations are to the destruction,
man made or natural to our Eco system.
What I would like to see is for this work to be commissioned and made on a very large scale and placed in public.
The strong message that it sends out will read the same any where in the world in making the statement of how our Eco system affects future generations. Each generation and human being has a responsibility to protect the environment.
Is there someone or some country that believes in this sculpture to make it a reality for it's message to reach the world .. it should not die with me in my studio.
