I created this sculpture on the evening that it was clear that Barack Obama had won the election and would be our new president. What a thrilling moment in history filled with renewal and the prospect of hope and change.
I was taken by his youth, energy, intelligence, vision and that dazzling SMILE.
Caricature is a great medium for capturing the spirit of the moment. This sculpture was created in a quick burst of energy befitting the event. It is all about that SMILE.
