When we were in Ireland at our art residency at Cill Rialaig, we were deeply inspired by the absolute wildness of the great Atlantic, the sky constantly fermenting and throwing up squalls that raced across the waves, sending up spiralling plumes into the air. To me they were like ghosts rising, dancing, flying and disappearing. This sculpture is one of those dancing spirits lifted from the ocean by the wind.
