" I have focused on creating works, which deal with human emotion and conditions, primarily dysfunction, fragility, vulnerability, and the finite nature of living beings. The physical features of the figures are sculpted to exaggerate and express those universal experiences, and feelings. I very much think of my sculptures inhabiting earth, they are you and I, our neighbors, co-workers, friends. I have tried to create a universal figure, which is a representation of all of us.
This is the first time I have created a piece intended to be reproduced in multiples. Normally my works are one of a kind and hand sculpted, no use of molds or duplicating processes. In this case, the original sculpture no longer exists, but the multiples do. I have several other sculptures similar in scale and format, but aesthetically very different which are available if someone were to show interest." - Derek Weisberg
