Sculpture Walk, 2015
Acrylic paint, 50mm tanalised plywood and 20mm laminex solid surface
“A group of 9 life-size cartoon-like characters are viewing 3 sculptures on plinths. The ‘cartoon’ figures are a collection of diverse styles-ancient, manga, kids’ drawings, graffiti, traffic-sign, cartoon, modernist, Rorschach ink blob and geometric. In contrast the 3 ‘ideal’ plinth sculptures are ironically mundane sign figures.
The sculpture echoes the Platonic notion of ‘the idea of a chair, the chair itself and a drawing of the chair’ each being one step removed from the next, except almost in reverse here, as the hSOTG visitors will also be regarding the figures regarding the sculptures and inevitably someone, at one more step removed, will be photographing the whole event”.
