God’s Prototype by Ian Crawley
As if ‘playing God’ artist Ian Crawley is taking found objects in nature, such as stones, sticks and moss, to recreate the human body. Humorously, the artist describes these pieces as what he imagined God’s first ‘sketches’ or prototypes of the human body would look like, with the materials that were available.
But this work isn’t focusing on Creationism or who (or what) created whom, but the connection we as humans have to nature. Reflecting on the natural-made versus man-made. These natural objects have always been used by humans to sustain them us nutrition, or protect them us weapons. Even though we now have processed foods and more advanced weaponry, there is still a need for natural objects. We need trees for oxygen, don’t we? Coexistence is the main theme in this work.
In the end, God’s Prototype is there to remind us that we aren’t above or below stones, sticks, and plants. We are part of the same level of natural objects, and though we’re made out of flesh and not leaves, we’re still as natural as a leaf or a rock.
