Symbiosis 2

Beechwood, small white marble pebble, acrylic paint

The central part of this piece is dominated by the unashamedly soft rounded vulva like form. This was emphasised even further by the addition of the smallest round white marble pebble towards the upper half. It leads up with the spike to a rusty nail fixing the protective arch over the dark side of the piece which has sharp spiky hooks underneath camouflaged in the darkness.  

Symbiosis 1 and 2
Both pieces of wood were found on a walk with my husband in Savernake Forest in Wiltshire in 2018. We were talking about relationship issues and the sunny bright day made it all much more easy to find solutions and a positive outlook for the future. Life is like a wave that comes over us and we have to swim and paddle and crawl and sometimes float with the current. Both pieces are based on this observation and were finished in 2020.
