About "Brother Sun"
This sculpture was inspired by the traditional wooden African carvings that decorate functional items. Brother Sun and Sister Moon refers to St. Francis of Asisi and St. Catherine, for whom he had a deep love. Gold represents the masculine element and is traditionally associated with the sun. It is also a metal with strong ties to Africa and therefore suited to the piece.
I am largely inspired by the natural world we live in, and the colour and content of my work reflects this. The constant play of light and shadow around us is visible in my work. I sculpt with light as a tool; reading the shadows that arise from the fall of light on a sculpted line. Life and its sights are a constant marvel to me. I like to find beauty and if I don't see it in something to recreate it with beauty.
