Using women as my subject, the female form allows a sense of spontaneity – the sleek roundness, and the fluidity of one line/form flowing into the next, allowing movement, that could just as well be abstract as representational. Form is just that, it is only the viewer’s sense of familiarity that dictates subject. As I am sculpting the figure, every point is considered in relationship to the whole, so the observer can, without interruption, move around the sculpture with each view a considered tableau. That they are women is secondary to the aesthetic sensuality of form. Conversely, that they are women is essential.
