METAPHOR (Cedar,Plywood,Nylon”Zap-straps”+Oil, 53cm x 55cm x 16.5cm, Dirk Marwig 2012)
- For this object I chose the “Hermés” logo because I like the letter “H”, also Hermés, in greek mythology, is the messenger of the 'Gods'. If you examine my work closer, you will come across the “H”(letter or symbol) frequently. The “H” for me represents the symbol for the eternal ‘Link’ or ‘Bridge’(like Hermés) to something we are always looking for (just like rummaging around for that ‘something’ we think we need in that handbag!)
This thought process is like 'lugging around' useless weight because we already 'know' -we just have to trust our natural instinct and go with it.
