Re: Venus

This piece is definitely an idealized or stylized representation of the female form as I see it. My reason for creating this piece was to express pure form, curves, line and movement throughout the sculpture, not to be an accurate, anatomical study of the female form. I did use model reference to a degree, photo only. By the way, his particular model did have ample breasts that were not silicone implants. I appreciate your comments Kilkenny. I don't expect to please everyone with my work, that would most likely drive any artist stop creating all together or just go completely bonkers.

I think there was some shrinkage in the casting process that slightly distorted her face. Hard to control.
