Edition of 11 of each figure

The concentrated gaze of the athletes signifies that moment of mental preparation which immediately precedes action. The pose is self-conscious and evokes the awkwardness and vulnerability but also the raw intensity and strength of conviction of youth. Beyond the world of athletics, with its inherent political and ethical conflicts, we can discern from the athletes’ faces the journey from innocence to experience.

About the Edition

The concentrated gaze of the athletes signifies that moment of mental preparation which immediately precedes action. The pose is self-conscious and evokes the awkwardness and vulnerability but also the raw intensity and strength of conviction of youth. Beyond the world of athletics, with its inherent political and ethical conflicts, we can discern from the athletes’ faces the journey from innocence to experience.

I have selected to work with athletes who are solo competitors, I am attracted to their solitary pursuit and their internal struggles. As with all my previous projects there is a blending of Ancient Greek influences and historical precedents in the work. As a group of sculptures they contain inner dialogues, they relate to the traditions of athletic sculpture, yet resolutely represent the time that they were made, most importantly they display none of the traditional notions of idealised perfection, instead there are contradictions and tensions.
