Our Cosmic Burden - Plinth pair

Photo: Matt Page.

Some parts of Our Cosmic Burden have been made with pairs in mind. Its just the way that things work out sometimes with ideas. It seems easier to work on more than one piece at a time and for some reason one starts influencing the other so you find yourself trying to balance them out. A sort of conceptual interdependancy. Its not like they cant ever be seperated though. They are like the other figures in the piece. They could be viewed together or seperately. Its kind of nice to think of sculptural pieces being independant and having a character of their own. Their relationship to other pieces then becomes a developing thing within itself.

Our Cosmic Burden

This is possibly the first photo that I have of them all together. There are 16 of them and they can be exhibited in any format really but normally I didn't envisage them so crowded together. Pushing them together though makes it look like a protest meeting which is rather nice.

Had a photo session a couple of weeks ago with Matt Page taking the photos in a studio session so will be posting a variety of them over the next few weeks.
