this piece is very reflective of how my life was working at the time. I felt like with every step i made forward i was taking two back, much like how with the growth of the power and knowledge the philosopher gains from his right hand, he loses power in his left.
the piece is very colourful, most specifically in the cranium. I created a stained glass effect because i wanted to convey the way i saw the philosophers brains process of thought.
there's also a second face amongst the stained glass head of the figure, which echo's Rodin's "thinker". I thought the combination of this and the imagery of the right hand allowed for the viewer to see how the figure is creating his thought. I wanted the lines in the moon scythe to seem like veins, bark and electrical cables.
I hope this helps - Lyndsay.
Holy Man-titties i got a DD!
