“The escape from a physical reality through the projection of the mind into a comfortable ‘mind-space’.” MM 

The work suggests an escape from the restraints of the world as the figure defies gravity once and for all. The title refers to the child’s game ‘Last Touch’ most often played at the departure from a friend or family member’s home. The feelings of exuberance, freedom and release are foremost in this piece. The sculpture also works on an allegorical level as the subject leaves this world and passes into the next.
