People look at this
eerie sculpture and question, what's this all about? The simple answer
is nothing. There is no deep unconscious message going on to psychoanalyze, so
When I started my Desert Storm sculpture, I
miscast the skull that was to go with it, leaving a misshapen jawbone, so I set it aside
to toss out in the trash. During this time, I became reacquainted with a former love
of my life that I had not seen in a decade. She graciously offered to pose
for my Year
of the Woman sculpture, but again I did a poor casting job and horribly
distorted her lower abdomen and marred her right breast. Now I had two miscast pieces
awaiting the trash, when I thought, distorted body... distorted
why not just put them together? I added a shroud to hold it
together, plus a series of my own hands to fill the top void.
Note- Each hand has it's thumb facing down except the top
hand with 2 thumbs.
