F is for Flower

F is for Flour Power – Regan Gentry’s Flour Power, is a massive wheat sheaf made of 13 metre tall galvanised steel lampposts. This striking work paying homage to our rich agricultural heritage. Wheat once grew in abundance from our city centre and was significant to our early economic development.   It was errected in 2009.   Artist Gentry says “Flour Power has a point to make. In Canterbury, fields of crops have given way to fields of houses. Rows of wheat have been replaced by rows of streetlights. Farm tractors have grown smaller and multiplied exponentially, growing sleeker and faster, modified to `pull chicks’ instead of ploughs
