The original drawing

Wood, bolts, nuts
Now: 1 1/2 x 14

This is the beginning of another Man sculpture. I have had the idea for a while. I want to do several different versions and play around with the ideas I started working with in earlier sculptures. In Hang, (see below) I was trying to show the figure from the inside as well as the outside - at the same time. I posed him upside-down and bound to the wood backing to elude to the idea that we all tie ourselves up with things and are bound in some way. I was feeling trapped at the time I created Hang. I no longer feel trapped, but I am still interested in the way we hold our selves back from things - purposefully or not...
