First@108 Award Winning Sculpture by Robert Worley ARBS


The Royal British Society of Sculptors (RBS) and Canary Wharf Group plc, both committed to promoting excellence and innovation in public art, launched the FIRST@108 Public Art Award to provide a unique opportunity for artists new to public art to develop the specific skills and experience required to compete for large-scale sculpture commissions.

Worley impressed the jury with his innovative, powerful and memorable proposal for ?Avatar?. In keeping with the 2009 award theme ?Interaction? Worley proposed a sculpture which interacts between two opposing forces pulling in opposite directions. The avatar figure, portrayed as a hawk-like beast has a shrunken human form embedded on its back, a symbiosis which is both parasitic and complementary.

Generously supported by Canary Wharf Group, London
