Sculpture: Ceramic, Clay on Ceramic.
The Flayed Man is one in a current series of work on the subject of physical suffering. Inspired by the imagery of martyred saints and the tortures perpetrated by the Spanish Inquisition, these works provide a secular approach to similar material. It is my hope that the viewer will derive a sense of empathy with the subject, and that this will lead to both an examination of ones relationship to the nature of suffering, as well as an appreciation for the sublime poetic beauty present in even the most abject circumstances.
