'Seat with a view'

'Seat with a view' is a new sculpture I have just finished for Strychnin Gallery in Berlin. It started a few months ago when I found an old clock at a market which was basically dead apart from it's shell and thought it would be nice to cut the front out and use it like a stage. At the same market I witnessed an old homeless guy trying entice a young girl by waving his half eaten corn cob at her. So a mix of that and too much Jethro Tulls 'Aqualung' album, this is what came out. I gutted the clock, refinished it and installed a small light with a switch. Then sculpted the characters and the trees from a mix of clays and hand painted them. The back ground is of children dancing around with balloons.
For enquires regarding pricing etc contact Strychnin Gallery.
