Statement by artist Stephen Glassborow on his sculpture Head Space:
For many years I focused my ideas on the figures I studied in fine art sculpture at college. But as my career progressed, I was commissioned to make sculptures that were outside of my traditional perspective. Firstly, I discovered that I could make anything I put my mind to, and secondly, commissions were opportunities to focus ideas on to new subject matter. One of these is where I won a commission to build a public sculpture of a horse for the City of Whitehorse. It was the head of that sculpture propped up on his nose in my studio , that sparked the idea of “head space”.
