POVERTY Mt Speed Siltstone. 12 cm w x 13 cm h x 5 cm deep

An obvious reference to German Expressionism. I find the political similarities a bit difficult and feel artists should be involved more in social issue discussions. This has two sides to their story and is open to a lot of different interpretations. It was smoothing with wet and dry that bought the colour out.

With a tray I could work inside, using rasps, files etc. Not too hard or messy, just not too quick either. I made a rough clay model first but basically direct carving. The planes catch the light and I played with this. While I did like the rough finish it is more suitable for bigger pieces and I will do that later.
