Colin Mitchell Artwork


24" x 24"

Plaster and Iron in Wood Frame


This sculpture was born through the act of destruction. I wasn't pleased with how the piece was turning out and decided to remove the metal from the plaster and start over again, but after removing the metal I discovered that that was, paradoxically, exactly what was needed in order to bring the work to completion. To really create exceptional art, an artist must be prepared to push their work to the limit, and even to destroy the work and start over again if necessary. My willingness to push to the very limit allowed me to discover the unexpected method with which to finish the work; and my concentration even in destruction, allowed me to recognize that I had found something spectacular, and to stop before it went too far.
