Besides commissions I also make creations from my imagination for sale in limited editions. Continuing my exploration of Neo-Surrealist themes this two-time runner-up in art competitions always gets plenty of attention. Cast from life to achieve the desired realism, she is presented just like a normal bronze figure. However, she is a real anomaly. I find my brain constantly looking for her other leg and end up staring her in the nipple because she has no face to fix on.
Her animated pose suggests she is involved in a passionate argument. Yet this cannot be possible as despite her body language,
She is a curious piece. One can only admire, never kiss, never talk to, never make love to. She is sexy, without sex. She is passionate but there is no possibility of passion with her. She is an enigma, a frustration, a freak. She prompts us to consider the impossibility of passion in our own lives.
