When I am working for a fixed site, I try to make the piece (usually in stone) fit the place, and fitting into its landscape. One hopes that those who pause upon finding the sculpture, will come to an understanding of its meaning, and of its becoming a living part of their landscape.
“A Conflict of Interest”
"These structures, made from cast iron and welded steel are both an anti-war statement and a plea for world peace. The Christian Cross and the Muslim Crescent work together in visual harmony.
The title of the four works emphasises the opposing forces of commerce and spirituality. The pursuit of wealth and the imposition of ideology can both create untold misery for millions of people. The four sentinels stand in silent vigil, as metaphors for both centres of worship or centres of power.
The site at Allen Mill is over 2 hectares, it is a reclaimed industrial site with adjacent river bank and woodlands containing the remains of the old lead smelting mill. The site is being developed as an out door sculpture gallery. The first works are visible from the entrance and outside the bakery/café but as the project develops new sculpture is being sited to draw the visitor into the surrounding countryside. The site provides a variety of settings which will accommodate a wide range of works and show them to great advantage. Visitors are encouraged to follow the sculpture trail along the River East Allen from Allendale Town to Allen Mill. Current works by: Peter Graham, Eden Jolly, Jason Mulligan, Dave Morris, Colin Rose, Neil Talbot, Gilbert Ward, Paul Wager.
