Young builder is engaging matter on his own. It's beautiful to see. First he gathers the material from his bedroom. Making as much noise as possible he throw everything upside down on the floor and begins to build without anyone's help or approval.
One could miscategorize this piece assigning it to the functional zoofigurative school. The lying bee in the background in a dead giveaway. However the off-the-board door in the forefront is a clear pied-de-nez to the old masters' strict and all-on-the-board rule oriented building.
The composition of the 2 giraffes is simply sublime. Each looking their own way they brilliantly express the artist's refusal to conform to the established order. The artist has clearly departed from his classical foundation.
You're on your own now buddy!
