The Feather is my debut sculpture design as a new public sculptor, after spending four years designing themed climbing walls in the active family entertainment industry for a company called ClimbZone, and almost twenty years painting public and private murals for my own business, BB Murals.
It is a direct response to the years of representational work I was doing. I wanted to create something that was not entirely based in reality, had no reference point, and seemed to come from a different planet. Something unique. Something that came from inside.
Viewers say it reminds them of stained glass, and even ask me if the panels are transparent, which they are not. With such a high gloss from the epoxy resin outer coating, they do offer a mirror like reflection of the world around them, making it difficult to distinguish what is there, and what is reflection.
