I am working on new stuff for a solo show in Berlin in December 2009. This will be a series called 'Asylum' with a motley collection of tortured creatures. This first sculpture is called 'Primeval'. After finishing it, for some reason, it made me think of a newborn.
This is also a new start for me. Up untill now, all my work has been very polished. This new stuff is very rough. I am not treating or grinding down any welding seams on these, which I have to admit is very difficult for me to resist.
But somehow this rougher look fits the theme I think. What do you guys figure?
The sculpture is made of mild steel, burned and varnished and is life-size.
