Looking at this sculpture of a man peeping out of the faux grasses sort of hiding, but not really.
Wanting to be found to be noticed -maybe subconsciously about myself?
“Yoohoo, I’m here.”
Thinking up titles is for me one of the problematic parts of a sculpture.
“Yoohoo I’m here” is one of the easier ones.
I experimented with mixed glaze and metallic oxides; that produced a type of animal quality to his body.
His head I chose to apply wax over some powdered colour to give a soft feel to the face.
I have used tiny buttons, with a wee brass link for eyes.
Represented on the the “Richard Goodall Gallery” on his Stand.
My name was in the brochure on the very 1st page! “Newcomer.”
In a paragraph, it read!
I felt very honoured.
I found out later that some artists pay galleries to show their work!
Not so in my case.
The reactions I mentioned at first, I want to elaborate on here.
Watching people is very interesting, viewing how different people react.
Is fascinating how different people perceive what they imagine from viewing art.
“Yoohoo, I’m here” expressions ranged from a smile to a laugh, while and others found the figures spooky, scary?
Maybe because some have screws for eyes?
That is why I said thought-provoking.
A sculpture can stop you enough to make you look; it must be a positive thing, so I’m happy to take the good with the bad, then move on to my next project.
Drawn in with interest, after all, they could have just walked on by without a second glance.
