Transcending the Figure Paul Digby’s ongoing project to explore and celebrate the front-line heroes of the public sector seems ever more pertinent today. “This representation of the emergency services as statuesque, massively sculptural figures in splendid isolation. They are isolated pictorially, and this actually reminds us that these crucial and often very separate roles that our emergency services play in our lives can be isolating and at times, traumatic. They are ordinary people who perform extraordinary roles and in my experience possess extraordinary abilities and determination.” Professor Neil Powell, Pro Vice-Chancellor, Norwich University of the Arts.
