Here is a sculpture created by in 2009. It's called "My Dead Grandfather."
I can't tell you what the author's perspective was, nor his intention. A message of warning perhaps? A sad scene of nature defeating nature? Humans after all are part of nature. If I had been there in person, different feelings would likely have sprung to the surface.
These pictures remind me what IT's all about. When I see this, I think more about the massive undertaking of the artist. A behemoth constructed from clay, rocks, and wood, shaped from the world around us.
To me, IT's about creation. It's about making something that was not there before and connecting it to personal experience. The realm of imagination crossing paths with the realm of reality. Each influencing the other. That's why I write.
What do you see in these pictures?
