This sculpture came about as the practical assessment for my philosophy module during the Masters course. The module itself was called 'Tragedy's Figures, Aesthetics, Politics, Philosophy'. An incredibly fascinating subject that involved much reading and inevitably, talking. The idea of making an artwork as part of the assessment process is only in it's second year and I think works really well.
More process images.
Once the sculpture got to this point, I then had to work on it's partner, which is a soapstone piece.
From here on, things started to get a little more complicated because I had to begin working the stone so that they would both eventually fit together.
