About the work
A drawing of sculpture in progress, The Footprints Ended.
The donated artwork depicts the construction of a larger-than-life figure using twigs and branches, which began in March 2020.
I have been making video recordings of the figure under construction, which includes added footage of Sunday walks in the area of Highgate Wood and Alexandra Palace. As a result, more by accident than intention, the changes in the seasons and the interaction of people in the environment has been recorded.
