With this work I was trying to evoke the public square. With a public statuary visual vocabulary and levity, I asked questions about how we elect heroes and villains to occupy our sacred public spaces. While making this work I was reading Joseph Campbell's The Hero with a Thousand Faces (1949), where I was fascinated by the hero's journey archetype and how it surfaces in our monuments. I thought, which of Campbell's seventeen stages do we typically depict in our narrative statuary, the call to adventure, the road of trails, or perhaps the magic flight? I embraced the idea of vulnerably and I blurred the lines with the grotesque. This is nothing new of course, just a retelling of a tail as old as time, the imperfect hero, the redemptive villain.
