HEROIC STUDY #2 , 2021 (in progress, ie: finishes)17.5" X 11" X 6" Popple 'knee', aniline dye/oil stain/oil varnishes
STATMENT;HEROIC STUDY #2 is my second examination of the concept of heroics being distilled in the anatomy of the foot/leg. Growing up during the 1950's-60's the ravages of polio was evident daily in the leg brace supports worn by a relative, a teacher and my next-door neighbour. These three individuals influenced my sensibilities in many ways. As such, 'heroics' is the effort required to stand up and face the day.
