Pendle Sculpture Trail In Woods By Philippe Handford
Artist Philippe Handford has created the Pendle Sculpture Trail,an unconventional artistic project in England consisting of various original sculptures along a special pathway.Philippe’s sculpture work is site specific and is inspired by the beautiful Pendle area and natural materials found in the wood.
His organic sculptures uses felled trees,a wind blown tree,holly bushes and a dry stone wall that runs the full length of the wood.
The most impressive piece to be found on the trail is his Reconnected 2.The installation,built on site will evoke a sense of perpetual movement and capture the moment when the mighty trees felled. The holly bushes,known to ancient druids as ‘spirits of the wood’,have been contained within metal cages fashioned into human forms provide an eerie presence among the trees.
A great inspirational work,unique in itself.
