Caterfly is an ongoing sculpture. I have strung together seven years worth of my daughter's shoes from 11 months old to her latest discarded pair at seven years old. 

The work shows the slowly emerging character and tastes of the child as she begins to chose the footwear, hence the name Caterfly. What is also revealing is the wear and tear on the shoes which provokes the viewer to imagine  the wearer's childhood experiences and their own. 

As a parent this sculpture is a beautiful memento of the blossoming of a child which no amount of photography or video can capture. The work is ongoing and will finish when my daughter is 18 years old. Watch this space.

Caterfly is on show at Art gallery, Mermaid Street, Rye, TN31 7EU. Saturday & Sunday 11am - 17.00hrs.
