The Death of Me

The Death of Me

I decided to make a piece which would not look out of place if displayed somewhere else in the Royal Cornwall Museum other than the gallery in which my show is hung. It is also a bit of a self-portrait, a snapshot of how I feel right now as I spend every available bit of my time working on stuff for the show. If thoughts could somehow be preserved after death on a skull in the same way that wounds or diseases can, my skull would look like this. Trapped within a cage of my own making, constructed of the knots which make up my sculptures. Always on my mind, always in front of my eyes. And yes, the nod towards Damien Hirst's creation is intentional.
