The Parrot is the Message
Wood and sock,
135x60x35cm approx. , 2011
The Parrot is the Message is pretty self-explanatory.
It’s also very aware that the life of an artwork, beyond its initial meeting with the viewer, is to have its content expressed, formulated and repeated; its reach then very much dependent on that repetition to third parties –much like chinese whispers. Repetition is what parrots are very good at, hence the title.
The multicoloured sock also looks like one.
