A figure that is larger than human size. I often disrespectfully place her on her head, but she can also be hung up on the wall in different positions. She is very flexible. The source is a drawing, and the reason why one of her legs is cut at the ancle is that the drawing reached the end of paper.
Human Without Hands is important to me. To use a drawing as source material and playfully letting it dictate the end result is a creative milestone, while I at the same time allowed myself to move the wood cut off the wall and into the room. When Human Without Hands is not being exhibited, it is hanging in the ceiling of my studio, looking down at me and reminding me that playfulness is liberating.
