Tim Hawkinson
PILGRIM, 1999
Stuffed socks 84x36x26 in.

The artist's everyday work socks make up the wax that drips from this man-sized candle, marking the passage of time and work. Why a candle? Think of special occasions, the passage of time, the light of the spirit. For the artist, PILGRIM is a record of pieces that he has worked on as 'recorded' by the socks he wore while working.
