From the artist:
Marble. I meant this to represent the poorer classes in societies across the world. Disadvantaged from birth, they’ll never fully realise their potential like wealthier people can. From another perspective, this is a more personal piece, reflecting on what it’s like being born deaf. I adapted relatively well to the hearing world, but in many ways I feel like it held me back a lot. Conversations are something that happen around me, so I’m always left feeling as if I’m on the outside.
