this piece is the marquette for the large welded bronze work ‘big man’ – a life size one off sculpture that is on public display outside lower hutt city hospital in wellington.
the imagery portrays one of comfort in the face of adversity. the polar bear losing its habitat to climate change through no fault of its own, displaced and alone. the hoodie represents belonging, a common piece of clothing almost becoming a symbol of our time with its own interpretations and connotations and super large south pacific size, lost on the other side of the world.
