MICHAEL HERMESH

Pocketa Pocketa, Pocketa, edition 6 of 15

Bronze 35.5 x 8 x 6.5 (including balloon)

$5200

Pocketa Pocketa Pocketa is the sound an old jalopy makes in a 1950s cartoon. The balloonist stands on a towering precipice ready to fall or take flight. This is a jumping off point, the leap of faith that is creativity. That being said the difference between the balloon and the weight of the physical is the spiritual dichotomy that is our reality. – Michael Hermesh

 

The Hat Box Man, edition 8 of 15 by Michael Hermesh at The Avenue Gallery, a contemporary fine art gallery in Victoria, BC, Canada.

The Hat Box Man, edition 7 of 15

Bronze, 26 x 9 x 5.75

$5000

The Hat Box Man is the person who supplies hats to dreamers when required. Every night he runs from dream to dream delivering them and every morning he packs them up and takes them away. – Michael Hermesh

 

Perfect Symmetry on a Cloudless Day, edition 3 of 15

Bronze, 18.5 x 7 x 5 (including balloon)

$4000

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.

In this case, the rock is real to the adult figure in the sculpture but does not even exist to the boy. He may have the choice to adopt the rock as real, or he can choose to not give it being.

The beauty of seeing what is really there, somewhat like the fool who sees the emperor has no clothes, the absolute reality solidity and weight of the rock does not exist to impede the balloon’s flight. – Michael Hermesh
