Sometimes it's just about art.
Sometimes it's not.
This has become the most photographed piece in my home exhibition space. The neighborhood school kids call him "Obamahead."
I had launched into the creation of this sculpture intending only to play on the idea of a modern Easter Island monument.
Wall Street was in melt down and I came to interpret this evolving sculpture as an allusion to those modern masters
of our world creating their own Easter Island moment. Yet the moment I placed it in the yard the questions
began as to whether it was supposed to be Obama. Since it suited my hopes in the coming
election I decided to not discourage this interpretation and buck the zeitgeist of the times.
Nevertheless I think this amply demonstrates that creation by the artist is one journey,
and the life of the piece of art in the eye of its beholders is a whole other
creative adventure. I call him “Looking Up,”
and leave the door open to further interpretation.
