Inside all of us is a wild-thing…
'I believe there is no part of our lives, our adult as well as child life, when we're not fantasizing, but we prefer to relegate fantasy to children, as though it were some tomfoolery only fit for the immature minds of the young. Children do live in fantasy and reality; they move back and forth very easily in a way we no longer remember how to do.' - Maurice Sendak
In my ‘Wildthings’ the focus is on children, the joy, and occasional consternation, they show when lost in their own fantasy world. My own children are often the willing models for my pieces and play a significant part in the visualisation of my work. For me it is also a chance to remind myself of that other world, the one were the wild-things gnash their terrible teeth, roar their terrible roars, roll their terrible eyes, show their terrible claws and still get home in time for dinner!
