‘Changing Seasons’, 2008

Ruthven Gallery, Auchterarder

The bronze sculpture Upstream series explores the movement of salmon during their relentless journey upstream through increasingly adverse conditions to spawn. It includes installations at different sites and a series of sculptures.

The work was inspired by the LIFE-Nature Atlantic salmon conservation project to restore salmon habitats in eight major rivers in Scotland – the Dee, Spey, Tweed, Tay, South Esk, Bladnoch, Oykel and Moriston.
