The sculpture is a contemplation on art left unfinished and artists that have left this world before having a chance to finish what they’ve started.
De Bretagne contemplates on fellow artists of all trades that across the decades have been struck by the deadly virus HIV and passed away, never getting a chance to shine their light.
The human shape of the sculpture intertwined with the unfinished aspect acts as a remembrance symbol and represents the fragility of life. A blob of red paint is applied to the upward facing head to represent the HIV virus and it’s destructive effects. Other elements are left to the interpretation of the viewer.
