How Thomas Houseago's 'Baby' Was Born

Email a Friend

Thomas Houseago's sculpture Baby resembles more of a giant than a small child. The British-born artist is known for creating pieces both imposing in scale and disjointed in their construction.

Houseago says the birth of his own son, a murder in his neighborhood and forest fires inspired this particular work. He also describes how it travelled from his current home/studio in L.A. to the Whitney Museum for the Biennial.
