In preparation for my solo art show, Maroc , I created a camel.
The welded steel sculpture is life size, based on sketches I have done on past trips to Morocco. Check out the bizarre feet! The strange face! The calloused lumps on his chest, elbows and knees! What a fabulous creature.
Once I had completed the sculpture, the real hard work started. I proceeded to REMOVE 1/4 of the steel by cutting out Moroccan motifs all over the camel's body. This allows light to escape, which was the effect I was looking for. Created in 2017.
