Donkeys in Elephant Land

James Green has a long held fascination with donkeys – who he sees as living in their very own strange and isolated world. When he saw his elephant template he instinctively wanted to use the unusual canvas to create a surreal landscape. Look at this elephant for too long and you may just find yourself lost in the strange land James has created for the Sheffield herd. At first glance his donkeys appear to be wandering through a sparse desert, complete with wiry cacti. Look again and you’ll notice white snowy dots falling down over the scene. Are James’ animals living in a snowy desert? Are they on another planet entirely? Track down the Donkeys in Elephant Land sculpture and see if you can figure out this wonderfully abstract design.
