New Sculpture - a work in progress

Adam and Eve

Back in my studio after being lifted out of it for way to long!

It seems to me that the great sculptors were masterful at reproducing the tension lines that are created by movements. It is literally the Life in Sculpture - the emotion one feels!

The lines are where the muscles pull in various directions to create movement. So for me, it is at least as important to study the inside mechanics of the body as it is the outside. As it is in life the Inner world creates the outer.

.......and so the journey begins......and life takes it's form....for today anyway.

It amazes me how you can look at the very same thing and see such a different view. That's what makes the first five minutes of each sculpture session so valuable. Your eyes get to see it for the first time again...
