Sculpture: 'Giullare (Amusing Bald Theatrical Caricature Bust statues)' by Emily Little
Bronze Bald Amusing Fun Head Bust Limited Edition sculpture for sale for Indoors Inside Interior on a Plinth or Table top in the House or Home or Outside Outdoors in the Garden or Yard, by the delightful Emily Little Artist`s Description.... "The work has been cast from a hand-crafted wax model. It can be displayed both indoors and outside and has a fixture incorporated allowing it to be secured to a base. Although the work on display is a 16cm bronze, the Giullare can be produced in various materials up to a height of 1 metre.
My sculpture, at present, is concerned with both representation and formalism and was influenced by a period of study at the Italian Mint in Rome. Using the human form as a point of departure, my sculptures are generally ironic in nature, partly created through their displacement, fragmentation and "sitelessness". The truncated human forms emerge from a virtual space and in this way, the work becomes as much about what is imagined as what is seen.
The expression of the Giullare and its intentional ambiguity gives ambivalent and contrasting interpretations of mood unified by a general a sense of complicity in multiple works. The work assumes connotations of Theatricality, Drama, Performance and Farce, drawing the viewer into its Absurdity and perhaps Echoing the Gaiety, Burlesque and sometime Grotesque Aspects of our own culture. In its illusory nature, the work takes on many connotations while essentially remaining the same.

"All my life as an artist I have asked myself: What pushes me continually to make sculpture? I have found the answer. art is an action against death. It is a denial of death. " Jacques Lipchitz 1891-1973
