In 2009 I was approached by Jacqueline Creswell to make a work for an upcoming exhibition in the stuning interior of Salisbury Cathedral, on the theme of ‘Liminality’, which can be understood as a transitional state or space in a broad range of contexts. I found that the Vesica Piscis, a symbol consisting of two intersecting circles, featured in the architecture and took this as a starting point for the design. Christ is sometimes shown in the intersection, the Vesica, to express his mediation between the human and the divine realm.
‘Liminality’ was hammer- and press-formed in a hot and cold state from Corten Steel, in nine sections that were then welded together.
‘Liminality’ has toured the Botanical Gardens in Wales, the Mid Wales Arts Centre, and finally Sculpture by the Sea at Bondi, NSW, where it was purchased by a private collector and curator. The production of Liminality was kindly supported by the Arts Council of Wales.
