Heads



 



newest head

The heads are quiet and symbolic.  The head sculptures may start with particular drawings but evolve into a form that is more about a mood or a time.  They are generally a response to things that are going on in the artist's life or have just been passed through.  In doing this the intention is that others will find something of their own experience in the works. The sculptures pick out who will understand which one.

Janine exhibited just head sculptures and drawings at Horsham Museum & Gallery, 12th November 2015 - 9th January 2016

Many of the heads have headdresses.  These can denote many things to in life ie status (high or low, spurious or actual), type of official duty, religious office, wanting to stand out, they can point upwards to an higher realm, they can simply say that a person is going out to have fun that day.  Sometimes hair is worn as a form of headdress with all the accompanying meaning (ie a sumo's wrestlers topknot).  These heads allude to some of these meanings

Masks

 

 


newest mask

The masks take on elements of the natural world as their headdresses and are all forms of foliate face or green man.  Their meaning is always death and rebirth, but this can be viewed in a variety of optimistic or more philosophical ways..
