Bronze resin, steel, granite
Edition of 15
This piece was designed for a private commission, from a proud mother of a professional aerialist. She told me the main reason she commissioned me, was because she loves my attention to muscle tone in my sculptures. We discussed various poses and finally went for this simple yet striking pose; the challenge was then working out how to suspend the figure in all her splendour. You may notice, the figure doesn’t have the typical, petit physique we regularly see in art; the figure’s stronger physique is representational of the client’s daughter as well as a celebration of strong, athletic women.
