About the Edition

Trajectories both possible and impossible permeate the work of Tom Dale. Having worked over the last few years with actual rockets and missiles he has now turned his attention, without loss of impact, to the more modest scale of fireworks.

For this new edition, The Mighty Crowns, which takes its name from a set of rockets that illuminate the sky with crown-like formations, he has performed a simple substitution by casting them in bronze.

The weight of the bronze from which they are made tells us that (like strange sceptres) these rockets will never fly, nor will they explode to light up the night-time sky.

I see these attempts to reach the infinite as rituals that try to fix meaning, just as the grand memorials and monuments in bronze try, but ultimately fail, to fix memories in time.
