Artist's description:

Artfinder "Artist of the week" see 'About' section for link.

This is a re-publishing of 'Beyond The Wall 18'
It is one of a sub-set of 6 pieces in the BTW series which predated and anticipated the making and exhibiting of new sculpture, TAP-STROKE-TICKLE which is currently in exhibition as part of The Waterloo Festival 2018 in London. @St John’s Churchyard, 73 Waterloo Road, 7-24 June, open 9am-8pm daily to 24:06:18. ( see also 'Me At Work' section)
Although the sculpture has it's own specific conceptual reading; It is also conceptually 'linked' to the "Beyond The Wall' series as a physical, real world manifestation, of the sub set, represented here by the republication of #18 as a further Borgesian reference.

The 'BTW' series forms a cerebral inquiry into the purpose of image making. Exploring image and symbol which over time will contribute to the illusion of decipherable language: of external significance.
The works are conceived to be shown individually, in isolation, or in random groupings to imply 'message'. Each piece exists within an abstract framework which, whilst having no visually usual explicit external reference, still suggests a greater purpose.

The external, real world, manifestation 'suggested' by the 'physical appearance of TAP-STROKE-TICKLE is further confounded by the proposition that that it's final, completed version will in fact never be seen.
You can contribute to the slow gestation of the final piece at St Johns Churchyard, Waterloo, London. until 27 June 2018.
