Touching Shadows

Touching Shadows
Plaster, microsuede, metal support

A sculpture of life-sized intertwined hands casts a tactile black silhouette onto the wall. By itself the sculpture is incomplete, however, the textured shadow reveals that the hands throw a dog-shaped shadow. The work uses a perceived source of light to draw our focus to the importance of darkness.
