Our Sculptors Exhibitions
Gathering, is an interactive and colourful artwork that will encourage physical engagement from visitors who encounter it. Created by Julian Wild, the sculpture consists of 12 colourful metal vertical forms grouped together in a clearing to represent natural structures found in the woodland, recalling shoots growing out of the ground. Joined to these structures are several mirror-polished stainless-steel elements that resemble the shape of woodland fungi.
Julian worked with local school children at Heart of the Forest School, and included their ideas for incorporating tactile touch points, reflective surfaces and colours into the final piece.
