GOLDENSQUARE

In a murmuration there is no central control. Each creature behaves autonomously.
It is the mechanics of emergency. Are we a society in a slow motion free fall with everyone
acting for themselves? The swirling beauty of flight from danger is not
affinity or cooperation in animals or man.


(Photography by Eamon Kennedy 2014 and Natalia Majewska 2016)



GOLDENSQUARE

Our eyes are used to fragments from antiquity. Our reaction to the contemporary fragment is that it is a far more
brutal treatment of the subject, as beautiful as that subject may be. The fractures are from pieces that I first
made as complete figures. These figures have been reworked, then pulled apart, fired, reassembled, edited, and cast.
All fragments portray the vulnerability of the figure.

GOLDENSQUARE

Myths, icons from the past, still believed in today.

GOLDENSQUARE

I remember being very struck by an observation of a senior archaeologist many years ago.
He observed that all societies in decline make oversized images of themselves. I prefer the human scale.

GOLDENSQUARE

Faces and especially eyes are said to be "windows of the soul" or perhaps they reveal just a moment in time
that catches the souls transparency. Just a moment and then it is gone, this is the most that I hope to
catch in the expression of a face, that unguarded moment.

GOLDENSQUARE
The fragments were an effort to use no more than was necessary of the body
to convery the sense and feeling of the whole figure.



“In an earlier show I made a series of figures entitled 'Women in their Own Company'. I was interested in portraying women free from the self consciousness they display in the company of those they wish to attract and
free from the judgement
of those who see them.
The fragments above come from that show. ”

The Archeology of Our Time

This show was entitled 'Low Entropy: The Archaeology of our Time'. Although there is definitely a relationship and
continuum with my previous work, I am responding in this show to the times that we live in and my sense
of the disintegration of western society as a functioning democracy.
