I very much enjoy the solidity of the great lumps of metal and rock in Del Geist's sculpture,
and the solid hills they carve and build, (and which remind me of Charles Jencks' projects)
but I also was drawn to the knitted or woven figures in the above two images. Patricia Leighton studied with Magdalena Abakanowicz after acquiring her degree from Edinburgh College of Art (I am delighted that she is a Scot)- and I can see links with both Abakanowicz's sisal weavings and her later bronze figures. I find their work exciting and it has inspired much thinking. I also now have the strong desire to seek out those pieces that are in the UK.
