Walking Figures in Work
Currently I have three walking figures in work. I am creating a set of three strange human figures to be displayed together in an environment. These are hollow chested Walkers, and these thin distorted figures will walk in an equally odd grove of trees.
I consider my first Walker a prototype; I am not too fond of it! This figure uses walking poles for balance, and is already mounted to a modest wooden base and on display in my yard. I did add a layer of transparent red oxide acrylic paint to this figure, which may not be very durable out of doors. The sculpture itself should last a long time, per the material specifications. So this figure will be a test.
Two of the new Walkers are a dark brown, and the third in this group is a pewter grey. The idea is to use the chest openings in some way, but I also like them just left open. I may use the padlocks and keys as part of this work, TBD.
