Beggar    2001

Cast Wax.    approx 40cm high.

Another piece that sprung from my experiments with body-casting. I remember at the time I was thinking about the way that all of us (the student body) was begging for attention and validation, the way you do when you're young and in an academic institution. About the same time I saw a similar idea by H.R. Giger, in which he'd combined a leg and hand to create a begging creature. I may be mis-remembering though, as I can't find an image of it now. Anyway, I borrowed (stole) the idea and title with a few spares I had lying around the studio.
