House of Hamlet

£3,500

This sculpture was created especially for an exhibition in celebration of Shakespeare. I have used the story of the play to convey my message of the futility of revenge. The left hand wing shows the events, murder and incest, which are torturing Hamlet. The right hand wing shows his clumsy attempts to resolve his distress using the traditional remedy of violent revenge. The centre section deals with the sadness of family breakdown and questions the concept of revenge as a simple and heroic solution, showing that instead it continues the original wrong to create a chain of violence.
