Two Kids, 1986. Two Kids is from the Statuary Series from 1986, and it symbolizes art as morality. If you look at the work, there’s some type of allegory taking place—some story. It could be starting to rain. And the one child is kind of covering their head with some cloth, with a garment, and kind of running over, and maybe pushing the other child—and is actually spilling the other child’s porridge. But the work is shiny—it’s in stainless steel—so it represents this aspect of transcendence and becoming. And I think it’s communicating morality, because at the end of the day, no matter what happens, if you had this work, you would always at least have a spoon to eat off of. Because if you look closely, the spoon is actually a separate element within the sculpture, and so you would always at least have that tool to eat off of.
