Identity plays a large part in my art in so much as I consider all art to be narrative in terms of subject,
the viewer, or the message. A narrative without identity is at best a cold irrelevant equation. That being said a happy face is a generic idea of happiness without the messy encumbrances of humanity. Joy as a product is as rampant as it is vapid. Self abnegation is a by product of the propaganda of joy. Service to an economic cause is a mask that hides an emptiness of spirit.

I do not have a clue about how the universe is put together but I very much doubt it is put
together as a spiritual hierarchy. The idea of animism – where all things are treated with the respect due a spiritual entity does not seem like such a bad operating principal though. I love the idea that a rock exists because it wants to.

The Conversation by Michael Hermesh

The Conversation by Michael Hermesh – Preview; There Are No Secrets

This is a new ceramic sculpture called The Conversation by Michael Hermesh. It is 21.5 inches high by 23 inches wide by 4.5 inches deep. It depicts two male nude figures on their knees with silent distance between them. There is tension in their hands and bodies that gives an emotional intensity to both of their stances and allows the impression of earnest intent between them. Their nudity suggests vulnerability and because of this there is a shared awareness between them. This emotionally dynamic sculpture will be a part of Michael Hermesh’s show – There Are No Secrets, which is scheduled to open on November 8, 2012.

Self awareness is the act of looking, we see ourselves in the eyes of others.

When sculpting or drawing a person I always like to think that the narrative behind the face is always much more descriptive than the exact physical representation. Objects or thoughts also have the power of narrative existence.
