Lovely Rita....

Now that's a big Baby!, Steel, 147cm x 87cm, 2008

A portrait of the child of some friends (Rita being her name), something riveting about the naturalness and ease inherent in the body language of children. Blowing it up in scale gives it a super presence in interior spaces, more on this piece later.

The after from the before...

The After from the Before, Steel, Cloth Doll (Made by Melkorka Reynisdottir), 120cm x 95cm, 2008

This piece was done as a commission from a client that had seen the piece "Fun on the playground". For me it was interesting to investigate the same theme but from the standpoint of a grown up as opposed to a child. The result is at once melancholy and nostalgic.
