Overview

Personal Brief: To create a sculpture that reflected the youth culture of young males within society.This half life-size maquette is designed to be shown as a sculpture in its own right, however subject to funding and location the final work will be created one to one and a half times life-size.

Goals

To create a piece of sculpture which portrays personal, internal dialogues which may have been inspired by external influences. This is a piece which if experienced in the round depicts a young man gazing at himself; from certain angles he appears to want to kiss himself and from others he appears to be threatening himself. I wished to make a piece showing the nature of the media influence on a young mind. Depicting the importance of a generation set adrift by the influence of too much and too little.

Process

This project was self funded, and self driven. I made the piece because I believe the message needed speaking. This maquette has toured Holland, and the UK. It has been shown in libraries, community centres, schools, sculpture parks and galleries.
