1990

White resin, rope, wood, 6'10" x 8'x4"

Again with much of this early work gesture and poise are stressed as well as the concern of detachment from both the immediate environment and those about the subject. The figure sculptures are positioned facing away from each other, engaged in seemingly separate pursuits. However, their relationship to each other is maintained by the interlocking loops of rope and the dimensions of their platform on which they stand. See that the visual vocabulary of rope, wood, colouring and the kilts of the figures, are reminiscent of my visits to the Egyptian section, of the British Museum that year.
