GA8 2

Sculpture by Georgiana Anstruther

i am no longer afraid
not of beasts
nor the wild.
somewhere between Earth and
Heaven, i unfurled
my armour of feathered wings
to stand naked,
upright.
i will now inhale
the wind
and the winter.





if only we could all speak rhinoceros

-What would you do if you had a magical cloak that could make you invisible?

-If I were invisible, I would head straight to the zoo to be with all the animals. I would climb into the cages and start talking to them.

The words of a lovely young man, around 6 years of age, who I had the privilege of speaking to when Kindred Studios opened its doors to the public this past weekend. Made me think of the extraordinary imagination of Leslie Bricuse and the intimate work of sculptor Georgiana Anstruther.

Oh what a wonderful world it would indeed become if we started talking (and listening) to the animals.
