LORRAINE MAGGS - ARTIST STATEMENT
Out on a Limb Series 2010
This collection of works is about going out on a limb and taking chances. It is engaging with the antics of monkeys and translating their agile actions and emotional excesses into a surreal form of human reality. As a result, works of challenge and experimentation emerged.
To attempt to extend the current limits of performance, to use suspense in a melodramatic way . To innovate, or go beyond commonly accepted boundaries.
“Why not go out on a limb? That's where the fruit is.” ― Mark Twain
