Fallen Branches, Plywood, Acrylic, Nails



If only ...

At the recent SWELL Sculpture Festival over 23 000 participants declared their love by writing on a small piece of coloured plywood and attaching it to a large heart constructed from fallen branches. Some of these declarations are displayed here for all to see and to delight in the many and varied messages. A maze is used to display the declarations, symbolising the difficulty in navigating both love and issues around climate change. Contrary to my expectations very few of these declarations were for nature and our environment. Are we too preoccupied with COVID and have other pressing issues been put on the back burner? I’m left wondering … if only we could display as much love for our beautiful surroundings and planet as we do for each other, maybe the environment would be in better shape.
