Studies for David
90 x 40 x 15 cm
As an on going work I take photographs of things I see repeated in the world around me , from writing on the backs of vans , to zig zag patterns. One of these photo collections is of 'dick doodles'. For an exhibition 'Members' about the 'male member' I used my photos to make a work called ' Studies for David'. Penis doodles were copied from these photos and carved in to off cuts of marble. The title references Michelangelo's famous marble nude 'David'.
