Re: Venus

I think the comments are interesting here. I think Mark's piece is extraordinary and the comments regarding the depiction of the female form in Art are good.I did try to do anatomically correct (somewhat) in the beginning and saw pretty early on that I had neither the patience nor the talent to do it. But I wanted to have the female form as the subject of my work ,it had to be somewhat representational with little or no detail....I was fortunate to come up with this piece early on: 'Lady in Black' (aka 'Reflections') At first it was pretty clumsy but over time I refined the line to the point where it satisfied me. And subsequent work was influenced by the simplicity of this early bronze.
