IN PURSUIT OF...
WHERE IS IT? On the west wall of the Chancellor's Hall at Strathclyde University, directly opposite the Prometheus statue
These small bronze animal statues depict a dog chasing a cat chasing a bird, while a second bird, or perhaps the same bird moments later, has flown away to safety.
It evokes a sense of the power of evolution or the survivalist nature of life; perhaps it is apt for it to be on display in the middle of a university campus.
The piece is one of many by Glasgow artist Shona Kinlock dotted around the city. She studied Fine Art at the Glasgow School of Art in the early 1980s and specialising in Sculpture for her Postgraduate degree. Kinloch, known for her sculptures of animals, has won numerous awards including the Millie and Benno Schotz Award (1985), the Saltire Society Art in Architecture Award (1992), and the Association of Landscape Industries Sculpture Award (1999). She completed “In Pursuit Of…” in 1996.
