||In the sculptor's words...
The Female Nude is the first sculpture in the
No Visible Means of Support series. The
series was inspired by combining the notions of loitering with the verbal expression to
create a visual pun. The figure leans against
nothing so no visible means of support becomes physical as well as financial. The Female Nude is a picture of
potential power and ability. From the
standpoint of formal aesthetics, she is built of smaller self contained volumes that work
together to form the whole. This places an
emphasis on mass, one of the basic elements of sculpture.
