'Ten Pence mix-Up' is a sculpture about something, which is unusual for me. more accurately, i think most of my sculptures are about some state of mind that we all experience at some time, but usually i resist the urge to define it very clearly.
this one is different. it is about temptation. its about the thing that keeps you wanting something, even when its nowhere to be seen, the image of it in your mind. the title refers to the earliest kind of temptation some of us experience - sweets! but really its about more grown-up kinds of temptation.
