- Being Here, Ted Fullerton -
CAST BRONZE & FABRICATED STEEL, 2022
Duncannon & Eglinton
Installed October 2022
This sculpture - Being Here - holds an umbrella out front and over a chair that will shelter anyone who chooses to sit and rest or have their photo or selfie taken. Its bronze figure is supporting an inclusive perspective “of being”. This “act” of expressed, extended consideration of generosity and kindness – holding the umbrella - will be felt and reflected as a gesture of community benevolence. The umbrella as a symbol is not only an archetype signifying a canopy of the heavens, shelter and protection but a symbol of self-worth.
