The hammer-headed figure, Executive Action, is a commentary on the notion of progress. The single-minded nature of actions by individuals driven by intent can become a force for building or destructiveness. Forces of opposition are a necessary component to progress but is the delicate balance of power and how it is applied that creates a force for positive progression. The image in intended to give the viewer the option of seeing it as their own conscience dictates. Either as blind intent based upon belief without regard to logic or compassion which often results in a force of destruction or as the unrelenting determination of the individual to take action and forge a new direction.
This work is part of an ongoing series of works anthropomorphizing “tools” to illustrate the nature of humanity. Technical man creates tools in his own image and impart the philosophy of his inner being.
