Gesture #1

Finished Oak - 26 1/2" x 20" x 10" - April, 1999 - Private Collection, Los Angeles, CA

Artist's Absurdity:

This has become one of my fave themes - a fragment of a fragment in a fragment. There's a room in the Egyptian wing of the Met in NY where random clay or sandstone tablet fragments are on display - wheat stems waving in the breeze, an upraised arm holding a spear, a single eye or the nipples of a dancing girl - pieces broken out of their settings at random by the vissisitudes of time, little sketches in stone of subjects the ancient artists would never have considered treating in their formal commissions. I love to go to this room and drink it in - very inspiring. This piece follows that inspiration. Hi Serena!
