The stunning bronze sculptures created by Anke Birnie are all unusually “one off” pieces rather than an edition and therefore each one is unique. Anke is fascinated in portraying an image of the natural earthly element “air” combined with the human element “motion”.
The successful resistance of the body in the wind is tangible to the beholder. The sculpture stands as solid as a rock and at the same time one is touched by the sense of movement. The long limbs and the swirling clothing are both a feature of her work and also reflect the process of the sculpture’s production: Anke uses textiles with wax to create the work.
