Troy Coulterman - "I’ve Come to Reach Out Blind"- painted resin - 5.5 x 5.5 x 10.5cm (14"x14"x26.6")
In 2017 Troy Coulterman attended an exhibition of Hergé’s work. The simplicity of his characters, the colour palette, the imagery and the fantastical stories revived Coulterman’s childhood fondness for his work and inspired this series. Coulterman set out to sculpt characters as if they were about to embark on some type of quest. All the sculptures look out into the unknown, ready for whatever may come. The forms and shapes that extend, surround or encase these characters are meant to intensify the urgency of their quest.
