patinated plaster. 12" x 8" x 9". 2015.
This sculpture is part of a three-piece series.
Originally sculpted in clay, these works were about capturing both the essence of the sitter and the hand of the artist. Their rough and gestural quality opens a window into the creation process, similar to construction lines in a drawing.
Each sculpture was created over a four-hour stretch and is life-sized. After their completion, each was cast in plaster, patinated and displayed on a plinth.
