This is one of 17 large production plasters by Toronto artist Evan Penny that are currently installed along a hallway at the AGO (Art Gallery of Ontario). Penny sculpts the original pieces in clay and then makes a mold before casting these plaster forms to keep as a record of the works. This piece is quite large as you can see from the size of the light switch just below the figure. I have shown a few of Penny's works before and this one typifies his statement - "I try to situate my sculpture somewhere between the way we perceive each other in real time and space, and the way we perceive ourselves and each other in an image". I quite like his work!
