Sitting Figure

Lifesize (Approx. 3' high)

Plaster and Iron

2002

I made this piece in the tiny living room of our basement rental suite for a brief show in a building slated for demolition. First I created a metal skeleton, then built a mold around the skeleton and poured plaster into it. After leaving it to dry for a few days I carved out the figure, then built back onto it because it was lacking energy. Eventually it ended up in the garden of my parent's home for years before being broken into pieces and buried (again due to a lack of storage facilities). I really enjoyed watching it change over the years, and the changing environment in the photos.
