After 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: 'Upekkha (Unusual Male Portrait Bust statues)' by Pete Sherrard
Two Identical and Original Portrait Heads Sculpture form one unified but opposing form for sale. This is another Example Of Peter Sherrard`s ability to Create something Different, Original and Unusual.He Captures something of the Buddhist 4 devine abodes. or perhaps more frivolously Two Heads are better than One.
American Buddhist monk Bhikkhu Bodhi wrote: ?The real meaning of upekkha is equanimity, not indifference in the sense of unconcern for others. As a spiritual virtue, upekkha means equanimity in the face of the fluctuations of worldly fortune. It is evenness of mind, unshakeable freedom of mind, a state of inner equipoise that cannot be upset by gain and loss, honor and dishonor, praise and blame, pleasure and pain. Upekkha is freedom from all points of self-reference; it is indifference only to the demands of the ego-self with its craving for pleasure and position, not to the well-being of one`s fellow human beings. True equanimity is the pinnacle of the four social attitudes that the Buddhist texts call the `divine abodes`: boundless loving-kindness, compassion, altruistic joy, and equanimity. The last does not override and negate the preceding three, but perfects and consummates them.?.
