Art Description

Sculpture: Plaster on Other.

This work has been inspired by two artists of the past: Eadweard Muybridge and Francis Bacon. Initially Myubridge made a series of photos (slow motion) of a child with paralysis that could not walk other than on all fours. This photo series has inspired Francis Bacon to paint two pictures titled "Paralytic child walking on all fours" and "After Muybridge - Woman Emptying a Bowl of Water and Paralytic Child". I could not resist the temptation to continue the story of the child and sculpted the boy.
