An image in search of an idea

Wood, plastic, wire, plaster, paint, permanent marker

This sculpture is the first iteration of YOU, a character based on a rock I found on a tree stump which comes to life as an image in search of an idea. Here it is mute but ‘speaks’ by taking up space, with a cartoonish smile that invites camaraderie with the viewer.
