Eleven o One
Eleven O One is a steel sculpture created by Ray Lonsdale, a local artist from South Hetton.
It was installed for the centenary of the first world war at Terrace Green in Seaham and resides next to the war memorial.
It stand 9ft 5 inches tall and is fondly known as Tommy.
Eleven o One is a reflection of Armistice at 11am 11th November 1918. A shattered man reflecting on the atrocities of war, on the day peace broke out with no sense of joy. A relief the war has come to an end. The war to end all wars....
I chose to colour pop deliberately, as the strong sunshine and white fair weather clouds coming inland make strong backdrop for the rust of the sculpture to contrast beautifully. A significant figure dominating the picture and we can see his face in contemplation.
