Last week I devlivered some sculptures to the Lion Street Gallery in Hay-on-Wye for the Hay festival (2 of the pieces sold so have to make some new editions already!). It is a lovely gallery, owned by a lovely man, in a very intresting little town; I couldn’t believe how many bookshops and little galleries there were in such a small town, in the middle of the countryside- nice to see a quiet place thriving with culture.
The work I took is some you will recognise but with new twists. I’m really happy with my new cast of a pile of books for Medicine for the soul. Previously I was using beautiful old books for the base, but then I liked the idea of casting them in white stone, giving this sense of precious books of old as well as playing with people’s peception- are they real or not!
