I was fascinated by these four life-sized bronze pieces form a collective that Bruce Denny has entitled ‘Intrigue’. There are two men and two women with one couple close together and the other wider apart. The placard, next to the statues, reads:
‘Much of who we are as individuals has to do with our interactions; with others, with ourselves and indeed with the world around us. In fact our whole environment depends on interaction; Atoms interact to make molecules, which interact to make compounds. Complex organic molecules interact to make simple cells, which are the basis of life itself. Our bodies are collections of cells which are interdependent, working together to create the whole.
Similarly in life we cannot exist alone. We are totally dependent on the relationships around us to survive. But further than this, on a social level, it is our interaction with others that help us thrive.’ – Bruce Denny
