Sculptures blast a hole in the spacetime continuum

I’ve had a tiger by the tail, trying to get to the point of actually doing this Peter Pan sculpture. I agonised over the question whether it will be worth the space and time it takes up. Sculptures can’t be filed away in 2-D like a canvas. They are 3-D, in your face, have weight …

Vitruvian Sheman

A possible theme for an heroic-romantic sculpture of the Balance at Eutopia? I was thinking recently about what could be an image for the Possible Human, moving beyond the magnificent but martial and solo male David by Michelangelo: I was thinking about my ‘Live Hand in Hand’ image of the man and woman, then of …
