Self Portrait Of The Artist As An Unclothed Woman
Sculpture - Bronze, Cast Glass
I realized some years ago that, particularly with sculpture, most of the work is highly self-portrait like, not just my own, but my fellow students and other artists. To me it is uncanny and so when I realized that my 'nude' had some strong elements of self-portraiture, even though I am neither gay, bi or female......but have a strong female part of myself (being raised pretty much exclusively by women, and strong ones at that) and this piece shows it. I was ready to put it into a show a while back and discovered that the glass "log" fit perfectly as a crown....and that did it for me. The stone she kneels on is part of the sculpture and so the three together make a really good self portrait. Ha ha......but, seriously.......
