Bernard the Benevolent
20" L x 6" W x 14" H
To me, Bernard the Benevolent is a stately little tropical fish. The pop of color provided by the magneto segment give Bernard a touch of warmth. His springy innards, coupled with the almost organically curved piece that transitions the fish to the base help imply aquatic movement. (At least, that is my interpretation).
Bernard was created using a motorcycle sprocket, semi brake springs, a motorcycle magneto segment, metal shears, a drill bit, a variety of tool handles and other bits whose origins escape my mind.
*Bernard the Benevolent will be on display at Christian's solo exhibit beginning August 7th at Southern Vermont Arts Center in Manchester Vermont. If you are interested in purchasing this piece, please email Christian for pricing and shipping information.
