Failure of a Secular Life

This was another sculpture that evolved into something totally different after it’s conception.  The original piece was a full figure of the sleeping model, but at 6’ it turned out to be way too big for the space available.  I love the whole “box” concept that I use for many of my sculptures. I decided to simply “shrink” the model down by removing her legs below her knees and then added the box to create a lingering claustrophobic atmosphere around her.  This is the beautiful Susan and once again I've place her in a box.  Strange... or maybe I just wanna keep her all to myself?
