bone man

I’ve been meaning to make a figure with these bones for a while now. They are kangaroo bones found beside the bike path between home and uni. Somewhat inevitably, the figure takes on more the feel of a skeleton than a silhouette. Bones are such a powerful symbol of death – such a different feel to the work than a flower man for example. Though ironically the bone man will probably last somewhat longer. A bit like dust man (see previous post ‘detritus’). Thinking back, dust man might be the only art out and about figure that has been done indoors so far. It is at least a week since I did dust man, but he still looks much the same, silently loitering in a half forgotten stairwell in the printmedia workshop of school of art.
