I know we are the Ice Bear Project and I know we set our selves up to sculpt awareness into the plight of the Polar Bear and its environment and indeed that is precisely what the Project is doing. Easter will with a fair wind bring us and our block of ice to Sydney to carve the bear for Earth Week. It is looking VERY favourable that we are going to be asked to do another very prominent bear here in the UK in early April… SO Ice Bear has by no means lost its voice.
In the mean time however I am setting forth to create another work which will talk of the plight of the Tiger… I am travelling to Delhi and then on to Kanha National Park where I will be joining a dynamic team lead by Latika Nath Rana. Latika invited me to join her for her Art Week where artists from across the world will be joining up to create work aimed at raising funds and awareness to protect tiger and its habitat.
My mind is a blur of ideas… all yet to be formed and solidified… but I hope next time to report on my findings with enthusiasm and excitement. I intend to use sculpture to unite people both in India and all over the world with the one aim of conserving that iconic cat and its habitat.
More to follow… I get back from this recce on 4th Feb… so till then!
