The Big Man

The Big Man by Lucy Bucknall

Trustees of E Tu purchased this work from ShapeShifter 2014. They considered it a work that conveyed empathy and thought it might be a source of solace to visitors of Hutt Hospital if it were sited on the hospital grounds.

Artist Lucy Bucknell sees the work as referencing global warming - the hoodie part of the modern culture and being sheltered by something that is large and encompassing.
