History

History:‘Conduit is a sculpture composed of five standing elements. It is situated some 100 metres across the parkland from Continuum, a sculptural seat. Both pieces reflect and transform the theme of the other, and should be considered together. These pieces are inspired by thoughts on continuity, layerings and accumulations, and aspiration in nature. Continuum reflects the same completed form of Conduit in its central element. The vertical elements which rise from the flanks of Continuum progressively develop towards its centre. The work again suggests development and transition, stages or layers, and a coming together to create a union, and new form. The wrapped leaves carved into the works celebrate five native trees: Common Oak, Hawthorn, Goat Willow, Alder and Scots Pine.’
