Tony Craig

Manipulation, 2008
Bronze
A black mass, like an upturned hand, it has all sorts of whimsical appendages serving as its fingers. And every inch of this creature is covered in letters, numbers, symbols, and designs, that rise up out of it’s black, almost moist looking surface. From where I sit I can see English, Greek, and possibly Arabic. And resemblances of a flipper, claw, leg, tentacle, and more wrap around one another as if they were protecting something that lay in it’s center.
It seems as if it’s supposed to be some sort of multicultural, multilingual, multi-everything monster– what would happen if every creature, language, and idea were forced into one, self-destructive being.
