"The Feeling of Movement, 11th View". Hawaiian Milo  wood, 9 x 18 x 12 inches. Created from a semi-decayed piece of Hawaiian Milo wood, I used the rotten section to create a singular foot, using the foot to "push off" the surface to create forward motion to the front of the piece. Thus creating movement. #derekbencomo, #honolulumuseumofart

Bt extending the legs on "The Feeling of Movement" series. Is till have the extended fins and the negative space is now the space from the bottom of the vessel to the surface the the legs stand on…

"The Feeling of Movement, 6th View" . Jacaranda Wood, 9.5 x 11 x 10 inches Jacaranda wood, after roughing out the design, it took me four attempts to finish this piece. It fought me all the way until one day it started to flow. I love the softness of this piece and the dynamic look of the movement of the legs. #derekbencomo, #honolulumuseumofart
