The Dream of The White Bear


Kerry is back in the studio sculpting the fourth of 14 compositions for his 14th series, ‘Polar Bear’.

He has long been fascinated by tales of the frozen north and when reading a copy of National Geographic he was fascinated by a picture of a polar bear swimming underwater.
Coincidentally he had been thinking about dreams and nightmares and this led to him contemplating, in a dark polar January what might a bear dream?

Kerry considers  “Sculpture is limited by being anchored by gravity and is therefore not true 3D.”
With ‘Polar Bear’ he is trying to create a true 3D sculpture giving the illusion of swimming in water.
