CUDDY, like all my work, is a moment between dream and storage. But this one is intimate, clandestine and odd.
CUDDY was made for showing here: Objects in conversation. Boxed smears of memory flavoured by homage; being the third pilgrimage to Colmar and the accidental coincident of Easter.
CUDDY is not unlike a handmade Chinese whisper of The Pittancer.
Sparrows dry hearts
fluttered in Joseph's tree
as the city approaches day by day
on cracked and creaking souls.
Even the wind lost,
amid the hill's rise
the gummy stick
and blood to the snow line
between wolves and haunted fellows
whose simple reverence weeped all the way
CUDDY is made of oak, ash, yew, pine, olive wood, steel, brass, perspex, tufnol, clay and lies.
