SOAR BY REBECCA NEWNHAM FRBS
 
Now at HSBC Bank, Solent Business Park, Fareham - Soar by Rebecca Newnham MRBS (glass aggregate). For the clients, "Soar considers a swan taking off from water and the symmetry of its wings in reflection. This sculpture has a strong relationship with the surrounding wetlands ofForum One as Bens Lake and New lake are close to the building as well as the rather more obvious proximity of the River Solent."

ECHOES IN THE MEMORY  

Blown Away by Sioban Coppinger FRBS was a stunning exhibit in Echoes in the Memory in 2014.  Thanks to the generosity of Peter and Carole Wilcock from Winchester who visit the gallery regularly Blown Away is now in the Boyes Garden at the National Memorial Arboretum's new Remembrance Centre in Staffordshire. Click on the link at the top of the page for more information. 

Sioban says of the sculpture, "Blown Away is a study of a moment.  The young man, his life fleeting as a gust of leaves, sees the whole world in a glance.  '... Time present and time past Are both perhaps present in time future...'.  Inspired by T. S. Eliot's Four Quartets, this piece pays homage to so many brave people whose lives are altered by their time.  The plinth fabricated in mild steel is reminiscent of hastily dispatched munitions ... or a ship's funnel ... left to rust.  Its stripes of bronze reflect adopted strength." 

A poem by Ingrid Seifert, a violinist with London Baroque, inspired by Blown Away  

Where will you be

what will you say

when war with

laurel leaves

the wreath of honour weaves,

when wind while

youthful years

are spent blows dry their tears,

when fear holds 

hands with me

to frighten off the enemy

and darkness

shines its light

on my companion’s longest night?

Where will you be

what will you say

when you remember

that hope and glory’s dying ember

was blown away?

Where will you be

what will you say?

INTERIORS

Much of the work shown at The Garden Gallery is equally suitable for interiors.  The gallery is gradually offering more pieces for the home and office, and last year sold two bronzes by Charlotte Mayer FRBS to yacht designers for a luxury yacht.  Click on 'Galleries' in the main menu for Contemporary Sculpture and Ceramics for Interiors.  (Image below: Scintilla by Charlotte Mayer FRBS, bronze, ht. 45 cms, photo: Steve Russell).
