More Necessity


22 December 2020. An early work that was completed when I was less familiar with the direction I was heading in. It was so easy to fall in love with the tones and textures of the individual parts but I lost sight of the total piece. So it languished... for years.


Perhaps the most difficult part about working on a “completed” work is less about where to take this Foundling but more about how I was to get there. With the piece already assembled, certain areas are just not assessible. Yet another challenge added to helping this work find its way.


The carved wood, so beautiful and bold was difficult to find a home for as it easily overwhelmed almost any work it was attached to, until this piece. Using it upside down the carving echoes the center piece and reinforces the brass laurel.
