About five years ago I first showed my design for the Tango Dancers to Alan Gibbs. I am very honoured that I am allowed to create a second work on the estate The Farm of Alan, The Mermaid bridge being the first. Since designing with such a long distance between artist and location is always difficult, I was very pleased that I could travel to London and show Alan two Tango Dancers and by means of sketches show the difficulty of the curved shapes in the top of the sculptures. It is very pleasant that Alan has a sensibility for these matters and radiates confidence that all technical issues will be dealt with adequately by his engineer Peter Boardman.
