Echoing Walls, Spain

Sculpture for public sites


Echoing Walls

Selected for the 2003-2005 Rincon de Ademuz Sculpture Biennial, Spain.

With Chris Butler, the Director of Castle Fine Arts Foundry, we drove to the village Arroyo Cerezo where the sculpture was to be installed. During the week Phil fixed the work into the walls of an old building in the centre of the village, whilst Diane made more faces in wax for Chris to cast into bronze on the spot, seven faces had previously been cast at his foundry.

Eventually twelve faces were installed, eleven bronze and one glass (cast by Jackson Fawkes). This village like many others, is losing its young people as they leave to find work, but the walls remember them.

Echoing Walls was awarded the Silver Manzana Prize by the vote of the participating sculptors.
