Sebastian (2012-2016)

Sebastian is a unique 8 foot (243 cm) bronze statue created using state of the art 3D scanning and printing technology, marrying together the ancient and the contemporary in process and concept. Taking its main inspirations from the Greco-Roman depictions of the boy/god Antinous, the Christian saint and martyr Saint Sebastian, and the myth of Narcissus, all coupled with the current obsession with the "selfie”, this major work is both an exploration of contemporary representations of the masculine form and a comment on the icon and its place in contemporary culture. The work also exists in numerous further incarnations, echoing the obsession of Emperor Hadrian (Antinous' lover) who, upon the death of the boy, commissioned more sculptures and likenesses of him than any other figure in classical times and deified him into a god.
