The Observer, 2017

The Observer is a bronze cast taken from a sand model that shows the fingermarks of its making. It depicts the head of an old guy that lays on his back, looking into the sky with his eyes wide open, a grin on his face. Written along its base, hidden under gravel, you can read the word ‘SKY’ in which the head’s gaze is directed, aiming to read through the fog and mist of the seeking news in the sky, may they be good or bad.

The Observer was shown in my solo show Gravity's Rainbow at Coleman Project Space, London in May 2017.

The following works were on display, too: 
Future Fossil Freak
Body Builder
