Sculpture of the ascending Christ, Parish church St Mary the Less, Chilbolton, UK.

Over the chancel is a millennium wire-mesh sculpture of the risen Christ. It is a single figure - the other two figures are shadows produced by spotlights that can be switched on by visitors with a button behind the pulpit - the sculpture translates into a trinity.

Sculpture 'CRUCIFORM' (101 x 53 x 20 cm) was jointly commissioned by the local parishioners and dedicated to commemorate 2000 years of Christianity and the new millennium.

My sculptures have no palpable substance or surface. At first glance they appear to be a metallic membrane but when you take a closer look they are not even a skin - they are instead a delineation of surface and form, modelled and drawn in three-dimensional space.
