Father and Son


Two wire figures are positioned in such a way that their composition immediately makes me think of a nurturing relationship between a father and son.

I had a brief look into masculinity, what it means to me, stereotyping of male roles for a while and decided that the subject is not only politicised and was briefly in the public eye with toxic masculinity debate but this seems to have been a short phase until something else and more interesting came along - like 'me too' or even 'Brexit'... Like these, my interest in the trend was transient but what I could take from it is my love of figuration and texture. Introducing a narrative is also a dangerous thing for an artist to do but this is sometimes a sort of shorthand but not the main focus of a sculpture.
