Show of Hands

I have long fancied trying to combine portraiture and caricature and so set myself the project of creating two sculptures of Steve Knightley and Phil Beer ( Show of Hands ) as a present for David, who introduced me to their music. It always strikes me that Steve and Phil are part of a long tradition going back to medieval strolling minstrels and so the idea of fashioning the sculptures with a nod to medieval grotesques seemed appropriate.

I hope a good deal of affection comes across in these pieces. I love their music and one song in particular, ‘I Promise You’, is particularly important to me. The casts are in two different forms of Jesmonite.
