I was asked about the structure that could be seen towards the top of the gallery conversion pic from Tuesday's post so here is a close-up. There are actually 2 of these heads suspended in the complex and they were installed soon after the gallery opened here in '89. The artist is John McEwen and I just discovered that he is also the artist who did the steel teddy bear laying on the grass in Wychwood - click here. Apparently Teddy is called "Pilgrim" and was done in 2011. McEwen is known for his star cut-outs as you see on the head.
