The Drummer Boy The Fool
A continual theme of hope
A collection of three paintings. These paintings are a direct response to the lay figures’ identity. They are not clothed; they are in their repaired damaged state. They appear in each of these paintings accompanied only by their plinths.
It is this interaction between the plinth and the lay figure that makes the paintings work. The plinth has become the light source and the direction of light that illuminates each figure. Light is a powerful force – a transparent allusive life giving energy.
It seems obvious that the lay figures would want to respond emotionally to a new found life source. Their actions and gestures become emotional and perhaps universal in their search for hope.
