"The Narrator," by Michael
ceramic sculpture - 17" (H) x 14" (L)
piece is not about my aversion to bridges. I have noticed
that religions love the image of a bridge; a bridge has a
starting point and end point and avoids the water totally.
It wouldnít take long to find numerous examples of this.
Artists and passions love diving boards; once you leap the
outcome is entirely uncertain, but thatís passion and
creativity for you.
The dogs in my pieces are rather enigmatic to me and not as
obvious as a suitcase symbolically. This dog is not caught
up in the manís passion and does not seem to trust the end
of the board. This is much the same as in my other
sculptures where dogs just arenít playing along with the
humans they are with."
