quill I & II
6 1/2 x 1/2 x 1/2 inches each
Born out of a dream of killing the innocent, ‘Quill I’ is a sculpture of a weapon and a tail of a hedgehog filled with poison at the end. The white wax is soft in comparison to the hard black part. The sculpture also shows how softness can encompass the hard medium, yet the black part is hard and bluntly piercing through the white semi-solid pointed half.
Reversing the negativity of ‘Quill I’ psychologically, I made 'Quill II' out of pure white wax, which is extremely soft and incapable of piercing anything but disrupting its own form, hence, balancing the state of emotions that played through me.
