The Bread Crumb Man by Michael Hermesh – There Are No Secrets

As we go through life we have the feeling that there is a way back. Somehow we have the possibility to return to where we were before. Like Hansel and Gretel in the woods we drop crumbs. We take pictures, save mementos, create memories, and as we travel through life, behind us, the Bread Crumb Man picks up the crumbs and puts them in his suitcase. The Breadcrumb man may be a thief.

Michael Hermesh

This sculpture was a strong influence on his selection of a title and theme for his show. In this work there is a man wearing a tweed coat and carrying a briefcase. At his feet are trees bent to the wind.

Art is in part the mapping out of dream time. These maps are not as solid and as concrete as the directions you may follow on a GPS. In our own personal dream time our bread crumbs of truth are picked up and tucked away by an entity we consider not to be ourselves.

I do not sculpt to illustrate stories or ideas; the narrative attached to a piece always comes while sculpting it or after the piece is finished.
