Battle of Britain memorial
I created a plywood multi-layered relief sculpture, depicting various relevant images from 1940.
The original wooden panel (above left) was also dyed and varnished in order to emphasis different aspects of the composition. In particular the colours of the RAF emblem on the spitfire wing, and to enhance the feeling of depth on the London skyline.
This panel was then cast in bronze which is shown (above right).
To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, I was chosen by Thanet District Council to create a memorial plaque to be on permanent display outside the Spitfire and Hurricane museum, at Manston airport, Kent.
This was my first ever commission in 1990, and started my fascination with relief sculptures, which I have been developing ever since, for over 25 years.
