Rooted and Established

Rooted and Established

Selective laser sintering, nylon prime part
Meadow Arts commission (2009)

The three miniature figures that compose Rooted and Established stand gracefully on the shelves of the slender Gothic mirrors of the Ante-room, framed by their columns and canopies.

Despite their decorative air of porcelain ornaments, the figurines - like Witness Tree in the walled garden - were also made using the latest body scanning technology and 3D imaging software.  They are the exact images of the three artists.

As if contemplating their own transformation into small trees, they are twisting to glimpse their reflection in the tarnished antique mirrors. Narcissus-like they are rooted in one place, eternally self-regarding and absorbed by their own reflection.
