I was rather honoured to be one of six artists asked to contribute a special work to the first show, in response to the theme "west". Danielle explains why she chose the theme here.
Meanwhile, I will explain how I responded to the theme here:
The word "west" immediately calls to mind western films. And when I think of western films I think of cliches and visual symbols of masculinity, which are things that I love to explore. I decided to go beyond the western and collect as many interesting symbols of masculinity that I could find, and create an absurd being who consisted only of these symbols. In the end, I found so many that I had to make three. (Acrylic on wood; each is around A4 size, and they are sold as a set.)
