    Reblogged this on The Artistic Spider's Web and commented:
    I ran across this artist’s works and was quite disturbed by them. Today I have an interview with the artist that explains his works. The pieces are still disturbing, but now I know why. It all makes sense now. I find myself, now, among his pieces. Please, take a look.
    HERE is also a link to an interview about his works.

    Too haunting for my taste…and as Jackie notes, disturbing. If the artists intent was children as victims, the impact certainly is there….but this crosses a boundary. Perhaps that is the message.

        Thank you so much for the link on Demetz’s interview! Profound.

        “I put the children in the position of being conscious of their situation or of reacting and obtaining justice on their own.”

        We’re not the first to question I see! I know that initially I felt the innocence of the children but felt somewhere, this was an experience in an adult world. There is no doubt, his work evokes a myriad of emotions and his intent is to spark conversations. As with most art, the observer can be said to feel experiences from their own lives and now, I can see his work goes beyond what I felt at first. He’s brilliant! And oh so very deep!.

    Hmm… this is disturbing. I love wood sculptures but this is saying terrible things to me. The gun, bruising and binding children is not my forte.
