'it's ok'

‘it’s ok’

Terracotta/ iron oxide/ metal patinas
h.90cm x w.38cm

The fourth work suggests some level of acceptance and knowing.
When situations become so overwhelming that they are out of scale for human comprehension, ‘avoidance’ is an understandable reaction.
This figure is standing… but it is slightly lopsided. Serenity cannot be achieved, there is no perfect balance. On first impression the figure is dressed in black leather and bound by a constricting corset.
The top hat defies traditional roles and makes a mockery of western capitalism.
One gloved hand is held up to express ‘shush’…but the mask of pretence is on and reality is questioned.
There is an uneasy reference to a supposed enlightenment. There is a mandala or wreath of flowers…and the other hand is held up to suggest ‘no fear’. It is only when you look behind the figure that some sense of beauty is perceived. The decay of the form is replaced by an expression of something more…

Oh gooood, so pretty! Her arms are so well done and I love the golden stripe on her belly. Amazing stuff! :O

Thank you Saskia... I appreciate your thoughtful comment. The stripe took a while for me to decide on....I enjoyed visiting your gallery and can see by your works that you also use the small , incidental but strong gesture as well.

Another masterwork . . . beautiful on so many levels I don't know where to begin. Once again, your brilliance inspires. :glomp:

Thank you Edward ..... your experience and talent....and approval is very much appreciated. This one was about excess and it's been interesting to see the public response... The most important part for me is the back....but alas I can't show it in the round.

Eventually we'll all need to start posting 360 rotation vids, like this one:
Still not as good as the first hand viewing experience, but an improvement
over still images!
