11th Commandment

Year: 2005
Materials: Powder-coated steel
Housed: Southwark Council 2006

This commission was for Channel Four who wanted a permanent sculpture to travel around the country reminding people of their programme ‘The New Ten Commandments’. I came up with this piece because I wanted a gesture that went with the words ‘Treat others as you would be treated’ There are three figures in the sculpture two are throwing the word as if to cloak each other, the figure in front is waiting to receive his cloak, he is red, to catch the viewers attention. I chose the colours because of Renaissance religious painting depicting people with cloaks and shawls touching angels and god. Blue Pink and Red.
