As you may remember from my last blog, I recently had the fantastic opportunity to create another bull. Revisiting the same subject matter is, of course, a challenge but it’s also a learning curve and offers the chance to take a slightly different approach to the time before.
It’s been an incredible experience to create this sculpture on such a large scale. As with the first bull sculpture I used the same abundant source of industrial scrap provided from sites in Newport, as well as Pontypool and Llanelli [where the piece was constructed]. Still looking to reflect the power of this industrial medium through the nature of the animal, I also strived to further develop the dynamic movement and life through the positioning of the animal.
It was an absolute pleasure to work on for the first two months and a labor of love for the final month.
