The Little Mermaid, 2010
polyester, fiberglass, china
100 cm x 55 cm x 56 cm
The Little Mermaid – the statue belongs to the series of several statues of nymphs and fairies, or the subject of a fairy tale, that I found after my father died. A fairy tale is like a story with the promise of a happy ending, however, it is the legend of the mermaid that brings a very different ending. The composition of the sculpture can create some unease, it is balanced and stands on a tiny three points. Elements of hyperrealism and expression then illustrate anticipation, wonder, but also sobering and a sense of irreversible fate.
Thanks to a private investor, a bronze version was created also.
