In the sculptor's words...
My interest in this sculpture started out as a mechanical problem. How far could I make a figure lean without having it visually fall over? I leaned her way out in space and stretched her neck, back and arms. Because there was no specific illustrative intent, many people see very different things in her. Ask yourself, “What is the decade, what is the time of day, what is her occupation, how may persons are in the room with her, is she introverted or extroverted, married or single, what is she leaning on?” Everyone has a different answer. Some people say she is a housewife. Some say she is a secretary, or a telephone operator or a hooker or a singer or a barfly. It is nine in the morning or two in the morning or two in the afternoon. Everyone sees her differently.
Just for fun, you might notice that her ankle straps are tied together. If she looked as though she was going to fall over, she couldn’t stop herself. An example of the artist playing a practical joke on his own sculpture.
“30s” is the last figure in the “No Visible Means of Support Series.”
