Two. In Love (big)

2001. Bronze. h-57 cm.

...Open scissors standing upright with the tips pointing downward suggested me how to make the sculpture "Two"... Thats how I accidentally stumbled upon the solution of the composition I was thinking about then... The male and female source in a human being they are always being attracted yet also repelled by each other all at the same time...

...This apparent instability of relationships and the uncertainty of interaction between men and women are the "perpetuum mobile" that drives life on... They create a single, solid and steady shape a form. For example, the form of open scissors with the tips down...

...It is on this simple and clear scheme that I saw the whole of my future sculpture... I just needed to fill it in with images and details... Two self-conscious loving "freaks", both showing a touching awkwardness on their first date, seemed expressive enough to me vivid and characteristic for this theme... I guess the result is interesting, surprising, simple and beautiful...
