stoneware ceramic, steel, recycled innertube rubber
Installation: 8’ x 4’ x 4’
The life-sized figure rests on a dais made from industrial steels and pipe.
Surrounding the figure are 18 life-scale birds; seven are bound and suspended by black rubber; the others are animated around the dais.
The torn and distressed surface of the figure contrasts with the serenity of the facial expression and the clean glossy white of the interior void; expressing serenity and the duality of the infinite inner spirit versus the temporal physical body.
