Telling Stories

Cartoons

This group of small sculptures are like three dimensional cartoons. They play with concepts of scale and gravity, and sometimes have a mildly political tone. The sculptures are intended to conjure a sensation of hope or warmth!

Elephants are excellent communicators and can also differentiate between spoken languages that they hear. This helps them to identify languages spoken by poachers which, in turn, can effect their migratory habits. To the external eye, they may seem to be heavy and cumbersome, but as a species they remain mentally agile and able to adapt to new threats. In these sculptures, elephants represent strength and kindness, and any trouts that appear are the antithesis…
