'BLOWN AWAY' @ SANDHAM
EXTENDED VISIT!

Until 31st October 2014

LATEST NEWS! BLOWN AWAY is only at Sandham until the end of the season.

'BLOWN AWAY' transferred from THE GARDEN GALLERY to the SANDHAM MEMORIAL CHAPEL at the beginning of August in time for the reopening, following restoration and the creation of a new garden, designed by Daniel Lobb.

The Chapel, which belongs to the National Trust, houses a series of masterly large-scale murals painted by Sir Stanley Spencer, inspired by his experiences as a medical orderly, and soldier in Salonika, Macedonia, during WW1.

Alison Paton, Steward of the Sandham Memorial Chapel, says, "We have affectionately called Blown Away 'Sydney'. Sydney was one of Stanleys older brothers who was killed in the First World War which utterly devastated Stanley. Stanleys eldest daughter Shirin was deeply and visibly moved by the decision to give the sculpture this nickname.

Volunteers from Tedworth House, a recovery centre funded by Help for Heroes for injured or sick members of the armed forces, helped to create the garden. They have commented that: BLOWN AWAY puts a face on the unknown soldier. For some, the title of the sculpture: gets to the thrust of the rawness of emotion when you have PTSD.

In the short time since the Chapel reopened Blown Away has become an integral part of the garden, popular with visitors and volunteers.

Although visitors, volunteers and staff at Sandham alike, had understood that it would be possible to raise funds to be able to keep BLOWN AWAY there permanently, today it was announced that this was a not going to be possible.

However disappointing, the good news is that the loan of the sculpture has been extended until the 31st of October!

So there is still time to visit Sandham, and enjoy the paintings, the Chapel, the reflective garden and BLOWN AWAY, all together.

BLOWN AWAY
Bronze & rusted steel : unique
Overall height 1.75m base 80 cm diam.

A study of a moment. The young man, his life fleeting as a gust of laurel
leaves, he sees the whole world in a glance.

Time present and time past
Are both perhaps present in time future
- T. S. ELIOT

Inspired by 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 ships funnel
left to rust. Its stripes of bronze reflect adopted strength.

'THE LONDON APPRENTICE'

A Proposal for THE WORSHIPFUL COMPANY OF PLUMBERS in conjunction with PANGOLIN EDITIONS

Sioban has been short listed by The Worshipful Company of Plumbers, who will be commissioning one of three sculptors to produce a bronze entitled 'The London Apprentice' for the new concourse at Cannon Street Station.

Cannon Street Station was the original site for the old livery hall of the worshipful company until 1863 when it was demolished to make way for the station.

The Worshipful Company of Plumbers are devoted to actively promoting learning and craftsmanship within the working environment.

It is hoped that the figure of the 'London Apprentice' will be representative of the ideals and aims of the Worshipful Company, whilst expressing the 'apprentice' in contemporary terms.

The three short listed sculptors will submit maquettes and proposals in June, after which the commission will be awarded.

Pangolin Editions, one of Britain's leading sculpture foundries, is working with the Company to enable the commission, and will be casting the chosen sculpture.

The finished bronze will be unveiled to mark the 400th anniversary of the Worshipful Company of Plumbers on 10th April 2011.

'SPRINGBURN HENS'

A commission for new Marie Curie Hospice, Springburn, Glasgow

Sioban has won a commission to design and produce a sculpture for Glasgow.

Following the completion of the new Hospice in Springburn for Marie Curie Cancer Care, five artists were short listed from an open competition. They were asked to put forward proposals for a wall mounted sculpture to adorn the main entrance to the building.

The aim of Sioban's proposal is to create a focus, a first encounter that reflects the people and the work that is done by the Hospice.

THE SPRINGBURN HENS - a flurry of white birds taking flight up the side of the building - will be lifesize and full of movement. They will draw your eyes ... and your mind upwards ...

Reflecting the nature of palliative care, the birds will be made of many hand prints cast from Hospice users and staff, made into bronze, and interconnected by merely a touch of a wing here or a glance of a beak there.

The commission has been made possible by Tesco, who are funding the sculpture project in its entirety.

REAL 2010

19-21 March 2010

Private View 18th March 6.30-8.30pm

The Real Art Show is the first show organised by 'Go Figurative' which, since 2008 has been connecting figurative art and artists with collectors. Sioban will be showing work alongside a selection of Artists from all over the world.

REAL 2010 will be an opportunity to experience a wide range of contemporary figurative art from artists working in a variety of media. All art on show can be viewed in the Real Preview Gallery

The use of The Heatherley School of Fine Art as an exhibition space is exciting. Just off the Kings Road in Chelsea, nestling amongst the Auction Houses and Interior design Studios, this private and exclusively figurative school is the perfect environment for the high standard of work that has been curated for this show.

Download a Real catalogue and have a look!

The Real Art Show is organised and curated by co-founders of Go Figurative, Sally Perry and Janine Collins.

ART AT THE EDGE

A Maquette for the Olympics!

Sioban is interpreting Handcycling with the help of Paralympic Athlete Rachel Morris who was Gold Medal Handcyclist at Beijing, and our Paralympic hope for 2012!

Art at the Edge is organising an inspirational public art display of sport themed sculpture.
The dual aims are:
- To celebrate outstanding sporting achievement, inspire young people and to deliver art to a wider audience.
- To raise funds for causes which improve opportunities for disadvantaged young people.

All the sculptors are introduced to a representative of their chosen sport so that they can gain insight into its key dynamic, which is how Sioban was introduced to Rachel Morris.

Handcycling has been a Paralympic sport since 1988. Top speeds exceed 30 mph in races, see more in this interview with Rachel Morris.

The day Sioban first met Rachel, she had just cycled 60 miles as part of her daily training routine!

The sculptures for the project will be developed in phases over the next two years. In the first phase, which has already commenced, established British sculptors representing a range of styles will be commissioned to create 30 sculpture maquettes (1:5 scale models) covering the major sporting disciplines. They will be cast in bronze by the prestigious Pangolin Foundry in Gloucestershire.

In Phase 2 an additional 30 guest artists will be invited to participate.

Phase 3 is an invitation to schools to get involved via a national sculpture competition. 12 regional finalists will be selected and their sculptures will be incorporated into our exhibitions, so that it can be part of the Cultural Olympiad 2012.

The final phase involves the scale up of sculptures to life size. Commercial sponsors will be invited to help finance this phase.

The sculptures will be exhibited at a number of promotional venues throughout the region culminating in 2012 with a spring preview of all 72 sculptures at the Eden Project and a summer public sculpture trail in the city of Bath. We will also exhibit the collection in London during the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

THE ENGLISH PAIR @ THE TOWN GARDEN
FOR CHRISTMAS!

opening times:
Monday - Saturday, 9.30 a.m. to 5.00 p.m.

Steve Jebbett (owner of The Town Garden) was wandering through 'village' Oxford with his daughter during the summer. They passed some people (Pete and Sioban!) loading sculpture at the rear of the Turrill Gardens after an exhibition there in Summertown. There amongst the items on the trailer was the 'English Pair' ...

'It caught my eye immediately, a 2 metre high sculpture of bronze leaves made in the form of male and female faces. What's so intriguing for me, is that this part of the city (North Parade, Oxford) is often known as leafy north Oxford. What a fit.'

'Last week, Sioban arrived at the store, complete with the English Pair, and it now sits proudly in the conservatory. I'm hoping it attracts a lot of interest (and maybe a buyer!) - and local traders and residents may also see the potential of having a landmark sculpture at the entrance to North Parade Avenue from Banbury Road.'

The The Town Garden is located just five minutes' walk from St.Giles in leafy central north Oxford. There is convenient parking nearby in Winchester Road and Canterbury Road. North Parade Avenue is a small oasis of galleries, shops, pubs and cafes, practical and inspirational businesses!
