47. Hand Kissing #1



Kissing hand means many things to many cultures. In a Turkish kid's mind, it usually means "give me the money" during Ramadan Bayram in which childeren are awarded for showing respect to elders.

I like them both. Beautiful. The silohette would again be a wonderful sculptural piece too! Cut metal. Keep up the good work !

Dear Hilary,
Re: 47
I particularly love "Handkissing" No 1 !
You have a clever way of showing the emotions of children in your artwork using simple lines.

Love
Jenny

Dear Hilary,

Re: 47 No.1: My comments also apply to No. 20 "I love you Daddy".

I think both drawings are delightful.
Love
Jenny

Thanks Jenny and Deb for your compliments and encouragement. Its quite a culturally specific gesture. It grabbed me because of the size of the hands, clearly old and young and the inter-locking nature of the grip.

Deb, There is an artist who exhibits out of Jackman Gallery in St Kilda who makes incredible life size steel cut outs from contour drawings of women. Its a good idea and can be quite dramatic. Your suggestion also reminds me of Calder's wire sculptures. Have a look at this link, the works are kind of 3D contour drawings - http://collection.centrepompidou.fr/Navigart/slide/slide_main.php?so=oeu_nom_premandit=2andcc=9andis_sel=0
