Carole Hodgson writes
"The sculpture "fools gold - Sardis", made in the late 90’s, has its origins in landscape and a particular site of antiquity. The ruined remains have become a still life in the landscape generating a work that is a configuration of memory and imagination, with the stepped segments being a result of intense observation.
Working with negative moulds, cement, pigment, wax and gold leaf, the individual horizontal striations butt up against each other allowing movement and stillness to interplay with mass and space. The gold leaf alludes to the legend of how later generations destroyed the Sardis site in the hope of finding the gold that they believed had been placed between the carved sections of the columns."
