Mother and Child | Roger Hardy
Roger works on figurative constructions and sculpture using found elements from local boat yards and estuary worn wood from the river Alde.
The estuary has been a productive hunting ground. Mud larking at low tide for wood, worn by time and tide. The found elements are relics of a history and time gone by. Found river wood has a previous life and a story to tell. Although the wood he finds has mostly been worked by man, nature has re claimed it and shaped it over time. So he is saving it and giving it back life and soul in the form of the human figure. Revealing the layers of history and life it once had.
Roger likes to work with the timeless quality of the sculptures. They could have been carved in the Middle Ages by long lost ancestors or pilgrims. He likes them to take on a totemistic resonance. They seem to have a soul/life becoming an icon of humanity. "As individuals we have a great desire to project our own humanity and emotions onto the most primitive human form."
When working on groups of figures Roger has in mind the recent migrating and movement of people from troubled lands. The river where he find the elements is of course a great conduit for the movement of people and spreading of cultures. He would like to think that the sculptures and constructions resonate with this. With new elements arriving on the next high tide.
