Location: High Street, Lincoln 2021. Imp Trail
Lincoln BIG are incredibly excited to introduce the third sculpture trail which will run during the summer of 2021 across Lincoln city centre. This is a mass participating public art event to celebrate, Lincoln, its art, culture and heritage.
Lincoln is famous for so many things but we want people to know about the IMP. The people of Lincoln resonate with the IMP, children have fun with the cheeky chappy, the football club has it as their emblem and the IMP resides in Lincoln Cathedral.
The sculpture is inspired by Lincoln Cathedral’s stunning stained glass windows. The design is made up of stained glass style with vibrant colours, bold black lines and patterns while showing a sunrise and sunset image on the front and back.
I went one step further with this design where I made the imp ‘disappear’ using the shapes. If you look at the sculpture straight on from a certain angle, all the shapes align! This was a little tricky but it worked beautifully!
