My intent is to render an accurate likeness of my subject however what I find more compelling is communicating the sitter’s “ inner world." I do this by contrasting the sculpture's stoic, classical form with its complex multi-patterned surface. Ultimately my aim is to express the psychological and spiritual complexity of my subject.
michael sent me the link to his web site and i just love his work-thank you for sharing your work with me, michael! see more sculpture here...and interesting drawings, too.
