Profile image of Pete SherrardAfter initially studying fine art, Pete Sherrard spent twenty years working as a photographer before traveling around the world and working with primates in various animal sanctuaries. Then, in 2007, he decided that he wanted to make a return to his artistic roots, so completed an arts diploma, graduating 2009 as a sculptor.
Working in clay and plasticine then casting in resins mixed with various media from wood ash to rice, Sherrard produces figurative pieces that explore and question the basic, raw animal nature of people.

Sculpture description:
Small Resin or Cold Cast Sculpture Nudes Representing Combat of Nature and Conscience of one Man Leaping in the air while another Man Pulls him down towards the ground sculpture or statues or statuettes for sale for Indoors Inside Interiors.A Small Graphic Sculpture of Hope over Realty By the deep thinking Sculptor Pete Sherrard in Ash Resin.
" The Balance between the Ego and Id, the eternal internal struggle of the conflict of the Conscience and Basic Instincts.
Artist's comments:
This sculpture is about internal conflict.
I am interested in the battle between our animalistic urges and our intellectual thoughts. This conflict seems to be so fundamental to the idea of consciousness that it is often stated as the main difference between man and animals.

Caution restrains our urges. Doubt tempers our ambitions. Intellect holds back our actions. These conflicts, however menial or profound, permanently affect us at every level. For instance: staying in a relationship that doesn?t make us happy, eating another cake when we want to lose weight or picking up a gun to defend our family even though we hate violence. These forces are conflicting and opposing. They are finely balanced, but rarely stay in equilibrium.

The two figures represent these forces. The upper figure is energetic and uplifting and the lower figure is solid and grounding. Therefore, I don?t want either of them to dominate the other or for there to be a sense of good or bad. Both figures need each other. Like two spinning planets, pulling against one another, dragging themselves in opposite directions. They revolve around themselves and one without the other would collapse or spin away out of control.
