Sweet Delicate Thing (Old Drum skin, Plex-glass, orange string and bloodwood, 97cm x 43.5cm x 8cm, Dirk Marwig 2014)
-This object glows from the inside. It transmits a calm, warm glow; delicate,sweet and tranquil.
This object again is a metaphor: The drum skin has been beaten and banged up all of it's life to the delight and enjoyment of others. Yet still it remains intact(more or less).Now it resonates beautifully but silently with dignity and honour emitting a kind of 'love', a kind of strength that we can only aspire to.
