New syringe sculpture Hope by Anthony Moman

Hope 2017
Syringes on marine wood

I have been in a reflective mood lately, torn between elation to be exhibiting in one of the most stunning locations in the world Venice, and what has been happening in my home town, London, and indeed anywhere else in the world.
This syringe sculpture has been on my mind and on the drawing board for some time but I have accelerated its release because I believe it transmits a message of hope in these challenging times.

To Be One (with the world)

Syringes are really symbolic and can provoke a host of different emotional reactions, mostly negative.
They can, however, alleviate pain, cure and protect against life threatening diseases, and change the way we look and feel about ourselves.
Our very existence can depend on one syringe, and they therefore deserve our respect and their place in the history of humanity.

The globe sculpture is called ” To Be One ” and it’s name was inspired by the poem

” To Be One With Each Other ” by George Eliot (Mary Anne Evans)

” What greater thing is there for two human souls
than to feel that they are joined together
to strengthen each other in all labour
to minister to each other in all sorrow,
to share with each other in all gladness,
to be one with each other
in the silent unspoken memories ? “
