Gordon Senior

The major theme in Senior’s work is man’s relationship to nature.
The Sculptures are spherical forms of varying sizes. Integrated into the forms are casts of seed heads in bronze and cement. The cement is coloured by using different kinds of sand.
Recently plants, seeds and the historical development of wild grasses into the grains that feed the population have become his central focus.
Many of the sculptures depict the seed heads of barley, wheat and annual meadow grasses. The work focuses on the importance to the natural environment of the evolution of grasses into food for animals and humans, and the continuing diversity of grasses and grains.
Seed heads contain embryonic new plants and the potential to continue the life cycle of each species. The sculptures, which might be seen as symbols of fertility, invite the viewer to consider evolution, natural selection, and cultivation.
