It’s been a while since I posted, partly because of school spring break, and partly because it took me this long to finish my new work. I like to throw in a new challenge each time in order to grow artistically, this time I finally mustered enough courage to tackle colour, patina head on. I’m wondering what took me so long. 🙂
A while ago I posted an entry about the famous Neolithic Hamangia figurines The Thinker and Seated Woman (https://erikatakacs.wordpress.com/2008/11/29/the-thinker/). I revisit the pair from time to time to admire their gesture and beautifully stylized figures. Whoever made them, it was an artist, no question in my mind. In this work I pay tribute to them and their creator(s). It’s my take on evolution and natural selection. It was a joy to make.
