Fall n Angel
Having never had an opportunity to sculpt a female character, this piece was more a study than anything else. The usual imagery of angels is terribly cliche’d, and I was trying to depict her as both relaxed in her nudity and seductive at the same time.
Fall ‘n Angel was never intended to be vulgar, though I must admit I enjoy the Victorian attitude that people immediately adopt in response (naturally!).
Quite interestingly, women seem to appreciate her natural form (larger thighs, and heavier knees than normally associated with model types) whereas men react mostly in defense of what they know. Fallen Angel really has been a wonderful insight into the psyche of peoples perception (and I can’t pretend not a joy to work on)
