Permanent Installation


Jon Voss (France)


Heron shines in soft luminescence as if caught in a camera flash while flying.

Its huge wings unfold for a fleeting moment – a snapshot in time. A homage to one of our most magnificent English birds, often seen along the banks of the River Wear, Jon Voss’ work celebrated the beauty of nature in the heart of the city. Heron is a new permanent artwork for the Durham city landscape, managed by Durham County Council.

Jon Voss’ practice is inspired by a fascination with the industrialised world and a passion for the natural. His sculptures and paintings seek to blur the lines between the two.
