The Inheritance

Postby stevem » Wed May 20, 2009 10:59 pm

Hello everyone here is the sculpture I have created for the UNICEF benefit show I have coming up next week in Chicago. I call this one The Inheritance. This one is meant to raise awareness to what we are doing to our world and as a result what we are leaving our children. The world is displayed as cracked and crumbling, coming apart at the seams.

Nice piece and a good message. I like the patina very much. The base, especially the colour, is competing with the piece though. It would work best without a base in my opinion.

Your work is wonderful, and I think you deserve a standing ovation for your creating such a significant piece. Hopefully, soon, mankind will understand the effect of the error of our ways.

Stevem, This is a 1st class work indeed. A stand for a sculpture is always an issue it seems. It use to give me fits. The stand you chose for this has a lot of work in it. Fine woodwork. Does it compete with the work itseft. Perhaps. Does it take from the work. No, I think not.

The inability to achieve perfection is what creates a work of art.

Thank you everyone for your comments. I am excited to see how the piece does in Chicago next week. This will be my biggest solo show I have ever had so a lot of anxiety is built up. I wish some of you could be there.

Take care everyone.
