Story Vessel Artist - Beangala Ward
My work has always had something of Zen about it. Not "simple", but I like to keep it uncluttered. I like texture. Surface and form stand out for me. Sometimes I despair at the amount of talk about Art. The visual arts are for looking at - they shouldn't need an explanation. But this work is part of a much broader scheme. Music, stories and peoples' event as well as sculpture. My hope is for a sculpture that works as a part of this larger event and also stands and speaks for itself, in its own way. I hope that people will be able to look at my sculpture and get a sense of the water, the tides, the dunes, the river with it's bridge, the farms and towns and the lifestyle we enjoy - all that is Beangala.
