"Public art can help a community to remember, to celebrate, to laugh or
reflect, it can tell stories of heroes past, or look with hope to the future, it is a
channel for the human story."
"Public art and sculpture works best when it sits alongside a wider process of cultural and
environmental enhancement. Why? Because our identity is tied up to a great
extent, to the land we inhabit and the ways we have made our mark on it over
"My simple understanding is that artists and the arts in the broader sense,
play an important part in the cultural life of a place, creating distinctiveness
and enabling imagination and a sense of wonder. This from the beginning has
been the heart and motivation of our studio."
