The piano player concept was inspired by one of my favorite artist Henry Moore. I love his “Reclining Forms” and “Mother With Child” series.
I like how he abstracts parts of the anatomy to bring focal points to his forms. So I too was inspired to place various emphasis throughout the work, such as, on the figurine’s hands. I really wanted to exaggerate the size of the fingers to draw attention to the piano playing.
My hope was to create a work of art that had energy, fluidity, movement, musician-and-instrument being one. I feel it has a lot of intriguing shapes and lines that brings you back to want to keep looking.
