Just over 10 years ago, my father had a brain hemorrhage. Thankfully he has made a good recovery, but still carries some of the scars/effects. Torso Series was influenced by this life changing event.
Inspired by this event, Torso Series explores perceived strength versus inner weakness, focusing on the male torso - a symbol of masculinity. The Torsos, grand in scale appear robust, classical & powerful, but on closer inspection, the poses are slumped and the surface cracked and fragile.
