Bursting Out 2005

Bronze Resin 42 x 28 x 27cm – £1750

This sculpted head expresses the idea of human growth and development. It is based on two ideas:

1. the hair, split in two parts, becomes animated ( based on the writhing snakes of the myth of the Medusa)

2. the woman’s head is “outgrowing” her original encasement (=hair) , similar to a chestnut conker breaking out of its shell.

IN this manner, this head provides an image and metaphor for the idea of development, growing -up beyond the containment of one’s upbringing, and outgrowing one’s roots .
