Paintings and Drawings
Each "Footrace" painting consists of three separate cut-out figures that are to be mounted on the wall. (Templates are provided to ensure correct alignment.)
The "Footrace" paintings contemplate and celebrate human beings' capacity to accept demanding challenges, summoning powers of judgment, will, and endurance. Are these "runners" competitors, or are they teammates? And are we observing a sporting event, or a life's journey?
