BIENNALE SCULPTURE

"A Changing Narrative of Female Existence Over Time”

“Leda” is part of a series of my sculptures entitled Mythological Images, my revision of the Greek Myth “Leda and the Swan”.

 

"A sudden blow: the great wings beating still
Above the staggering girl, her thighs caressed
By the dark webs, her nape caught in his bill,
He holds her helpless breast upon his breast."

Excerpt from Leda and the Swan by W.B. Yeats

 

 

My rendering of this myth brings the legend into today’s context. It offers a changing narrative of female existence over time. Unlike the story of the ancient Greek Myth, this sculpture “Leda and the Swan” transforms herself into a powerful swan, who can fight off her attacker and protect herself. My version of Leda pushes towards GENDER EQUALITY. 

As I sculpted this series, I saw the strong sensual shape of the Swan and the Woman become one.

 

I studied at Rhode Island School of Design where I fell in love with Sculpture. Clay felt so right. The fluid sensuality in my hands.  Sensuality I learned to translate into polished sculpture. I need to sculpt and draw.  It is elemental to my existence.

 

 I love to sculpt on circular forms, the exquisite harmony of a beginning and end merging in time.

 

I live and work in rural Vermont. My sculpture has been deeply influenced by my visits to Venice. Venetian color and light so breathtaking. Gilded light on land, sky and water, a painter would need a new vocabulary of paints. My eyes fill with tears of joy every morning.

 

Each time I visit Venice, I return home to my United States,Vermont studio in an explosion of creativity. Each place, Venice and Vermont, magnifies the intensity of my work.
