Stillness & Motion

River Green, Richmond

A graphic and dynamic artwork through which you move.

herons at rest, nesting amidst the trees
On one side is a monumental, translucent image that extends the length of the bridge: life-size images of herons nesting in a rookery – an intimate, almost domestic, view.

flight – stillness
On the other is a concentrated dense image: an abstraction of a bird’s wing caught in motion and presented at an enormous scale. An image both delicate and powerful.

flight – motion
At night, you see a heron slowly moving, beating the air, fluttering in a continuous loop. A bright, moving, presence – powerful yet gentle.
