While visiting Portishead near Bristol, for our family dentist appointment (deep joy), I took a few quick shots of one of the impressive public artworks just by the docks, titled ‘Flying’, by Lucy Glendinning.

“I wanted this sculpture to reflect the feel of the site, to give the sense of scale that being by the sea gives us, the feel of the wind and its effect. The impression of freedom and power the sea lends through its elemental force, as well as being a point of travel and adventure.
The flying figure gives the sculpture a gravity-defying energy, an uplifting and celebratory sense which communicates a conscious or subconscious confirmation of human achievement.” (Lucy Glendinning)
