'Greer' is a character, part of an ongoing series of work, exploring tensions held within the concepts of the angel. Replacing primary limbs with wings significantly changes the ideology of this mythical symbol. The notion of existing as an angel becomes something of an irreversible, immortal burden. The work displays an athletic physique, realistically required for a bird-like character of this proportion. This androgynous, winged being explores the paradox between power and beauty, solidity and weightlessness, creating an ambivalent narrative to the form.
The name 'Greer' comes from the Celtic/Gaelic meaning for 'Watchful' or 'Guardian'.
