He Advanced by Temper
The No Boundaries collection reflects Temper’s yearning for exploration and his new found direction as he navigates the challenges of life.
‘He Advanced’ was the first of the No Boundaries sketches series. The play on words for the title He Advanced has the words HEAD ADVANCED VANCE, explained – Advancement of the head, and Vance seamounts are a series of underwater volcanoes, giving reference to the brain ready to erupt by the artist. There is a couple kissing in the trees to give reference to temptation and the main character looking in the opposite direction and focussed on more mature thoughts, a tree stump suggests that a maturity in the artist was short lived and cut down, however the tree rings are a reminder of experience and years of knowledge. There is also to fresh tree growths to the right of the character in amongst the fungi, letting us know that new things are coming out of the mouldy setting and this time the figure is without device or equipment to suggest instinct is the tool for the start of this journey
At a pivotal point in his exciting and groundbreaking career, the No Boundaries collection is an opportunity to buy into the artist’s journey and resurrection from the struggles of his past.
Each Temper piece is signed by the artist, offered with a certificate of authenticity and professionally framed.
