Profile image of Mike HanselESSAY:
Irony is a tactic of indirection: it works by implied or suggested contrasts. Verbal irony hinges on a difference between what is said and what is meant; dramatic irony relies on a difference between what the audience knows and what a character knows. Visual irony can spring from the difference between the apparent and the actual. Michael Hansel`s own declared intention `to satirize function`, by juxtaposing natural and mechanical elements, hints at one source of irony in his work. Irony is inherently complimentary to the recipient: it s...

Artist's comments:
Affiliation
2009

I think of my sculptures as reconstructions from my visual memory. Each design is the result of personal observations of my surroundings that have been processed and re-invented in my mind. My ideas go through many evaluations during the design process and construction of each sculpture. I generate and develop most of my ideas through the use of preliminary drawings and clay models. Most recently the work has explored the concepts of stability and the relationship between numerous elements when they are working together to establish a unified whole. Affiliation takes three rigid forms that appear to be flexible and lively. The three elements work together to maintain an uncertain balance. Experiments with this concept have yielded some interesting forms that appear to be simultaneously cohesive and unstable.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."

Customer comment on 'Rainbow 1 (Curved Arched Modern abstract Carved Wooden statue)' by Liliya Pobornikova
Hi Liliya, Rainbow 1 arrived today. I can`t describe my delight, it is so truly awesome, where did you ever find such a piece of wood, and you are so skilled, creating such a unique piece. I`m not worried about the crack, it`s natural, and part of its beauty. This will be a privilege to own, and will last for so many lifetimes. Kind regards,
Mr A. Chalmers, Suffolk, United Kingdom.
