Keir Smith, 1986/7
A ‘railway sleeper’ sculpture, with three carved railway sleepers connected on both sides by railway track. This was installed in Grizedale in 2009 after Smith’s death two years earlier. Themes for the piece include circularity, return and homecoming.
This is a very evocative piece.
Other works by Smith at Grizedale include: Seven Stones before the Old Man (1980) and Realm of Taurus & Stag Pit (1979)
