The End of the Man by Sergey Safonov
I’m preparing to take a sabbatical from writing this blog, so following up an epilogue with an end seems pretty perfect! I’ve got one more interview and one announcement coming, but this will be my last post on an objet d’art for a bit. I’m happy to coincide this conclusion with the final chapter of Sergey Safonov‘s Godot character.
As soon as I received this piece (made in Moscow, couriered to a hotel in San Francisco by a friend), I knew I’d inevitably carry it to a beach to take these photos. The End of the Man is a nearly-life-size porcelain sculpture that represents the last stage of the Godot story arc. We were with Godot as a chorus boy, and we knew him as a man. Now it is time to say a fond farewell.
The 9″ x 6″ unglazed bisque porcelain bird skull is impeccably crafted and subtly nuanced. It’s available with free worldwide shipping in a limited edition directly from the artist here.
The end of an era….One of the most under appreciated journalists I have ever had the opportunity to read. Unlike others in this genre of writing you really pulled no punches and were not here to suck up to artists or companies for hopes of free swag. Its really sad as your output has slowed down my foot in this type of art has slowly waned as well. I cannot read about how every new piece is a great work of art or self promotion at every turn. I don’t care about shitty customs anymore or artists who remain stagnant for years. But through all of this I really appreciate you , Jeremy as a snarky writer who remains true to all things green and your Lynchian sensebilities. Thank you for your oft unrewarded hardwork you are a great writer and a person!!!
