Fallen Angel

FALLEN ANGEL 2010
Dimensions: 55 cm high x 86 cm x 68 cm

In this sculpture Tienie depicted a fall from grace. It is the exact moment when one has to acknowlegde that he or she has made a mistake, the cognition of lapsus. That moment when you are confronted with failure, not knowing yet how to react, but accepting that it will result in reprobation. Tienie used the fallen angel to symbolize this concept., because it is such a perfect example of our collective fallibility and the resulting emotion when you realize that you can not undo your wrong-doing.
