Finished works for Acid Drop Copse The Somme”



A wax montage of soldiers, photography and pewter is made after Caspar David Friedrich’s  “Wanderer above the Sea of Fog.”   Sydney Hurst stands  high above  a mound of dead toy soldiers and looks into our eyes in wonderment, forcing us to question the significance of the individual and the events that took place in this landscape.

“All the business of war, and indeed all the business of life, is to endeavour to find out what you don’t know by what you do; that’s what I called “guessing what was at the other side of the hill.”

Techne 2: “If These Walls Could Speak – A place in time”

“Footfalls echo in the memory 

Down the passage which we did not take 

Towards the door we never opened 

Into the rose -garden.  My words echo

Thus, in your mind.  

                                     But to what purpose

Disturbing the dust on a bowl of rose-leaves

I do not know.”

(T.S. Eliot: Four Quartets, Burnt Norton)
