A NEW piece of artwork which will form a gateway to Portishead's Village Quarter development has been unveiled.'Elemental' is the latest piece of public art to be installed at the new Port Marine development and comes in four parts Axis, Cascade and Air which stand as a group and Flare, which is on the opposite side of the road.The piece has been created by Easton-based sculptor Matt Stein.It creates an invisible arch, drawing people over the new bridge at the Portbury Ditch.The stainless steel piece in marine grey represents a family group and the negative and positive energy of life.It is illuminated by a cooling blue light.Mr Stein said: "Elemental follows the path of my existing sculpture designs."It's reflective of an ancient belief in the way the world began."In the beginning there was nothing, then nothing became something and together they formed an egg, which hatched and life began."Mr Stein formed Steinworks Sculpture in 2005. He studied fine art at Bristol Polytechnic and has exhibited nationally.This year Steinworks will exhibit at Chelsea Flower Show and the Grand Designs Exhibition and Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.
