BBC Essex Radio

“This is BBC Essex, Big News Story Breaking In Great Dunmow… It surrounds the appearance of a GIANT PURPLE EGG… Nobody knows how it got there.”

No, this is not an Alan Partridge sketch, it’s true…But how did a giant egg appear in the middle of a duck pond in a leafy Essex village?

Actually, the mystery was solved when Kevin admitted that it was he who waded through the, admittedly deep Doctor’s Pond, in Great Dunmow, and placed one of his giant polished eggs on the duck island.

He certainly caused quite a stir amongst the residents of this sleepy Essex town

Kevin was happy with the reaction of Great Dunmow’s residents to the egg: “It made me smile when I heard some of the comments made I’ve spoken to the Council and even though they told me off, I will be putting something on the island next year.

Sweeney’s first works were sold at the Royal Academy in 2007. He has since created various one off pieces for prestigious exhibitions including the highly respected Eaton Terrace Gallery in Belgravia, to corporate commissions at BAA Stansted Airport. A colourful past and method-acting career inspires Sweeney’s sculptures, specifically his study of the Laban technique. This understanding of the negative space surrounding an object and the pressures found moving through it feed energy and drama into his work. A meticulous finishing process follows which reflects the artist’s personal journey and obsession. The result brings a totally unique sensation from the interplay of colour, reflection and form on their tactile surfaces. Featured on the BBC’s Royal Academy Summer Exhibition Show and the RA Illustrated Catalogue, BBC Essex Radio and now BBC’s ‘Look East’ are documenting the commission and installation of a Sweeney sculpture at the Burlington club in Mayfair.
