New Bronze Releases by Michael Hermesh

These are all brand new bronze releases by Michael Hermesh that are available through Mike’s show at The Avenue Gallery “And So It Goes”. The details and prices of each sculpture is listed below. Each work is finished in the traditional medium french brown patina along with highlights where appropriate. The Hat Box Man, Pocketa – Pocketa – Pocketa were both released last year and have been very well received. They are well into to their editions so make sure that you order one from one of Michael’s galleries before they are gone.

There will also be another new release of new bronzes later in 2018 – the details of which will soon be posted.

Life Without the Ferryman

The job of the Ferryman is to get you and your goods, goals and Gods from one shore to the other. The guidance of a Ferryman could be confused with purpose, reason and a safe Captain. In our life ultimately we have no control over the boat, Ferryman or not.

Meaning is something we imbue into the mystery of our existence by the action of being and awareness.

We are responsible for the meaning of our own lives.

One True Thing

The list of things we know for sure is very small. We cannot be sure of our external reality, and at best our perceptions give us confirmation of our internal narrative.

One true thing is that we exist as awareness and intent, and in that understanding we are supernatural. For those things to be true we are separate from a mechanistic cause and effect universe.

A View From the Shore

It has been my observation that people who want to control you love the metaphor of the bridge. You cross the water without getting wet and end up at a predetermined location on the opposite bank.
It has been observation that artists love the idea of jumping, diving, and swimming. There comes a point in the act of creativity where we have to let go of dry land and jump into a reality that is unknowable and unpredictable (It has not yet been created). This is the most frightening thing we can do. This also allows us to be what we are.

The dogs in my pieces are rather enigmatic to me and not as obvious as a suitcase symbolically. This dog is not caught up in the man’s passion and does not seem to trust the end of the board. This is much the same as in my other sculptures where dogs just aren’t playing along with the humans they are with.
