Aherm is a new and continuing series of bronze sculptural heads which are created to be worn. the point being to enable a sculpture to move through a space and around the viewer rather than be static as expected, if you like, an exchange or destabilisation of standardised contextual relativity. to take on and manoeuvre the viewer.
Aherm is a ‘herm’ or a clearing of the throat in embarrassment or a Hermes figure of ancient lore, a ‘green man’ or knight. a figure of forested myth and literature, a deep seated icon not only in the western human crepuscular psyche. it is an expression of pan human creativity, an ambiguous disquiet of light and dark and always thankfully of subversion. despite it’s history Aherm is a figure consistently for now.
