Abstract

At three metres in height, the figure of a man looms over the viewer. Painted on two fibreglass resin panels with a thin wash of paint in muted, sombre colours, the man is stretched and anamorphically distorted. His elongated legs seem to enable him to reach towards the sky, so it takes a moment to realize that this is a figure with no head or face, an anonymous figure burdened by two heavy bags of books that bend his back and drag his arms groundward.
