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:
Finding this shape is the result of creating some distortions of coral formations. Numerous preliminary drawings led to experiments in model building in clay. I prefer to start with vaguely familiar objects and strip away information until they become less recognizable. The resulting forms are references to the meandering nature of the thought process. The finished composition leaves the viewer with the comfort of familiarity and the uncertainty of not being able to truly identify or categorize any of the forms. The materials have been chosen because of the reference they make to industry. Steel has long been associated with durability and utility but I make every effort to focus attention on the materials appearance. The implied movement of the piece contradicts all the things that we understand about steel and bronze. The materials are distressed in an effort to reproduce the effects of use or age. These are clues pointing to the notion that these objects may have experienced a former life.

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.
