h: 170 w: 90 d: 24 (cms).

The form is inspired by time and material, by our familial correspondence with others - once here, now gone. The sculpture title “I SEE YOU, I HEAR YOU.”, expresses the acknowledgement of another, through time. The sculpture looked at energy lines of language in Neolithic stone carving (Knowth), whilst in physical dialogue with the time held in the wood’s materiality, i.e., in its patterned grain - the actual body flesh of the larch sculpture. Ubiquitous time is imprinted within its summer and winter growth lines, waiting to be found, disclosed. Sculpting techniques applied include: carving, laser cutting, welding. It's integral plinth base is: 90 cm long x 43 cm at widest point to 6 cm at narrowest tip x 12cm deep approx.
