About the Artwork

Recently I have been thinking about how I associate language with my nationality. As the Covid-19 pandemic has progressed I have recorded the new phrases that have quickly become part of our daily use. As a contemporary artist I think it’s rare for people worldwide to have such a similar experience within the same period of time. It therefore seems obvious to me to produce artwork around this theme. Masks perhaps signify this shared experience more than anything else, becoming protection for ourselves, other people, and even as fashion statements or expressions of individuality. This is despite our facial emotions and visual communication being hidden and thus restricting our social interactions with one-another. Hopefully one day we can visually reconnect without so much of a need for these. Despite all of the anxiety and sadness the one thing that prevails is hope represented by the many rainbows displayed during lockdown.
This is an installation artwork that I feel everyone can relate to.

  • The ArtParkS Guarentee

    All the sculptures on the website are described by the Artists themselves stating the materiel they are made from and their dimensions. If they are stated to be suitable for outdoors they have a guarentee of 10 years subject to the effects of weathering which will alter their colour and finish over the years unless you give them  regular cleaning and maintenance. For instance Bronze and to a lesser extent bronze resin/cold cast bronze will aquire a green patina, usually rather sought after and all could attract moss  lichen and a greeny pollen especially under trees which should be removed regularly with warm water and washing up liquid.
    Iron and steel will oxidise(rust ) and this falls outside our guarentee.
    Organic materiel like wood, bark willow is variable and depends to a great extent on where it is sited and you should discuss any guarentee direct with the Artist as this too falls outside our Guarentee.
