John Mann’s Brain

John Mann’s Brains

Poignancy of a time gone…

“Loss of Found” is Kevin Dubois’ representation of the brain of his close friend John Mann. In another time, Dubois might have chosen to do a marble bust of Mann to honour him. Instead now, Dubois has chosen to “marble” Mann’s brain. The humour and irony inherent in this sculpture embody qualities that Dubois has known and loves in Mann. Yet, the marbles also contain the poignancy of a time gone by representing the “loss” we all are experiencing as Mann’s early onset Alzheimer’s progresses. The beauty in the colours and movement also illustrate Mann’s beauty as he is again leading the way for us with his ever present dignity and grace.
