Contemporary Sculpture at ARTPARK EXHIBITIONS

 The sculptural composition acknowledges an architectural quality, which stems from my interest in design, architecture and construction. This work continues to investigate architectural ideas and design with the emphasis on the vertical, referencing totems and figures.

The totem is a subject, which has occupied me for years. Intrigued by the totems from various cultures and civilisations, such as Aboriginal, African, Central and South American and Oceanic tribes, Ancient European and Eastern civilisations. My interest in the totem extends to the totem pole, where not only a connection has been established with my interest in architectural references but also with the figure, the quasi-representation of our selves. Questioning the need for humans to erect tall vertical structures from the times of Stonehenge to the modern high rise. A curious parallel is the evolutionary stages of man- from the horizontal to the vertical.
