It was four years ago now that I created the sculpture titled ‘Kiss’. It has been shown several times at different exhibitions and been admired by many many visitors to my home where it resides.However I am now offering this piece, which I think is quite unique for sale, to fund the next round works.

There is very little sculpture around, even internationally, that presents male to male sexuality and also I feel much of the more recent  homoerotic art in general often is quite brutal and aggressive. With this particular piece I wanted  to try and capture the power and intensity of passion that can exist between  men but  I also intended a sense of equality and tenderness to be present between the two lovers.
It is more difficult to do this in bronze I think than in a painting, though there is always that aspect of being able to touch and interact with a sculpture that you can’t do with a painting and the different angles it can be viewed from creates an added sensory dynamic that I really like about the medium.
 I hoped their evident sexual arousal and intimate involvement with one another would evokes a visceral response in the viewer and convey the raw passion they experience. Perhaps remind us of our own sexual selves and our moments of  pleasure and raw passion.

It is time Kiss found a new home and I wonder where that might be and with whom? I hope you will be able to forward this post on to others if you think they would be interested. I am keen to sell Kiss and open to all reasonable offers.
