Product description:Urban mans struggle in an industrialized society is realized with this architectural figure fragment series. Bound by brick and mortar these fragments depict an eternal struggle for freedom, to break out of the restraining structures that bind use to the systems of our civilization. �Monuments define a civilization�. Here Jeff explores a surreal world of monuments to humanity. With the architectural figures, the brick armature is revealed.

Attention to beauty lost is heightened; the juxtaposition between hard and soft is like the layers of the human personality or character. Inner strength is stronger than flesh and bone.
