14” x 10” x 4.5,” Carved basswood, paint, aluminum, antique toy blocks, and pen. 2019. Loosely inspired by T.S.Eliot’s “The Hollow Men.” But it’s also inspired by anyone who is, at some fundamental level, empty. Narcissists and sociopaths immediately come to mind.
Prefabricated antique toy blocks courtesy of Jane Carr. The large toy block, which is the figure’s torso, was hand-carved for this piece by the artist. Bottom platform is 12” x 12".
The toy block that comprises the torso is hollow.
The head, together with the neck is 2.5” tall.
Each piece was carved separately, and is joined with an aluminum rod. The arms, legs, head and collar are all moveable. The antique toy blocks are loose, and can be rearranged.
