A drawing perched as a sculpture, placed high on top a plinth, Matthew Monahan’s Lesser Known Son is captivating in its placid simplicity. Reminiscent of the famous Easter Island moai, the stoic face could be a refined descendant of the prehistoric remnants of idolatry; its serene delicacy points to something more cerebral, a futuristic incarnation of primal ritual and belief, possessing the secrets of ancient wisdom. Creating his monolith in paper, Monahan’s ‘sculpture’ is a humble facsimile, encapsulating a sense of timeless wonder with a meagre and bereft gesture.
