Miracle of the Legs and King’s Wood Illuminations, 2008-9
Pryor undertook a research residency in King’s Wood in 2008 and returned in July 2009 to launch 2 new works. Modelled on the legs of forest walkers, 3 wooden limbs appear high in the canopy of beech trees. This unexpected grafting echoes the iconography associated with Sts. Cosmas and Damian, patron saints of Challock’s parish church.
King’s Wood Illuminations is a bookwork which marries images of pools of light illuminating the forest floor with a poetic account of Pryor’s exploration of this English landscape.
