"The Narrator," by Michael Hermesh
ceramic sculpture - 17" (H) x 14" (L)

"Though the 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."
