The Young Family
|The Young Family|
The Long Awaited is probably my favorite of her sculptures. The young boy exudes a sense of innocence. While I sit back and question the fish/man the boy sits in content. Each character is silent, still, and dreaming. Their expressions are gentle. A wave of calmness hits us. Patricia Piccinini created a new kind of freedom, sacrifice, and understanding in one art piece. We race through all of the Hows? What ifs? and Whys? but just sitting back and accepting this for what it is makes the brain quiet and the heart content. Art that provokes... all of these feelings, but expresses calmness shows the complexity of one's mind.
