The two sculptural forms situated in the Northern and Southern points of Duxton Plain Park, Grounding Points: Settled and Grounding Points: Settling In accentuate notions of support systems and dependencies reflected in our contemporary landscape. Interlocking two distinct materials in each sculpture, their bodies—although seemingly balanced from afar—can be seen leaning on each other.
Grounding Points: Settled and Grounding Points: Settling In take their cue from the familiar materials around us, natural and man-made. Like the park nestled in the bustle of the concrete cityscape, the artwork is inspired by structural elements from these shared spaces. Mirroring species of tree to metal forms found throughout the park, the artwork pays homage to reciprocal connections and kinship between the synthetic and organic, as well as humans and nonhumans.
