Cross

Photograph by James Glossop for the Times.

Sculptor Andrew Kinghorn works on “Wayside Cross from a Warzone” – a largescale depiction of a crucifix surrounded by assorted debris .

“My sculpture tries to depict an altar or wayside shrine during a time of social collapse. The shrine has been cobbled together from the debris of destroyed lives – a railway sleeper forms the cross, a shop mannequin becomes an image of Christ. Incongruous objects like a battered suitcase, a car tyre, a soldier’s helmet, a stiletto shoe or batteries have been left as offerings, as have fruit and vegetables.” The Times 14th December 2016.

Bronze and steel. Approx 1.4 x 1.4 x 4.2m

This is yet another sculpture that was never shown in Scotland despite many attempts to exhibit it.
