About the Artwork

The Skull Is Made Out Of 580 Syringes On Wood Wall Sculpture.
Syringes have become almost indispensable and from the first documented use of them in Roman times, they are now used all over the world to administer life saving drugs,recreational drug, vaccinating children to eradicate life threatening diseases, cosmetic enhancement injections, tattoos, controlling diabetes, IVF treatments and medical research.
According to the World Health Organisation, about 90% of the medical syringes are used to administer drugs, 5% are for vaccinations and 5% for other uses such as blood transfusions.
The skull in western culture was once considered sinister or a sign of man`s mortality but it now has become cool to have a skull as a brand icon.
The reaction of the viewer to this sculpture often depends on their experience of syringes.

Artist Comment

My syringe sculptures have been chosen to appear in the European Cultural Centre during the 57th Venice Biennale and are displayed in a group show called Personal Structures - Open Borders alongside Hermann Nitsch, Jeff Koons, Dolk, Marina Abramovic, Francois Morellet, Joseph Kosuth and Gunther Uecker. The exhibition is from 13th May - 26th November at Palazzo Mora, Venice.

  • The ArtParkS Guarentee

    All the sculptures on the website are described by the Artists themselves stating the materiel they are made from and their dimensions. If they are stated to be suitable for outdoors they have a guarentee of 10 years subject to the effects of weathering which will alter their colour and finish over the years unless you give them  regular cleaning and maintenance. For instance Bronze and to a lesser extent bronze resin/cold cast bronze will aquire a green patina, usually rather sought after and all could attract moss  lichen and a greeny pollen especially under trees which should be removed regularly with warm water and washing up liquid.
    Iron and steel will oxidise(rust ) and this falls outside our guarentee.
    Organic materiel like wood, bark willow is variable and depends to a great extent on where it is sited and you should discuss any guarentee direct with the Artist as this too falls outside our Guarentee.
