This is beautiful...I love it.
A Matter of the Heart is reminiscent of an Art Nouveau stylized bust, but the features and skin texture are more coarse and real rather than romanticized. The figure’s upwardly gazing eyes are dreamy or vacant- the pale color offset by the coiffed but stony flames of her hair. I don’t find the piece nostalgic, or sentimental, as one would imagine with the intended subject matter and emotional content. The heart she’s holding lacks qualitative vibrancy to imbue it with preciousness or life. But the rawness of her expression is poignant in that it’s stripped of all pretenses. I find your other sculptures posted here quite different in terms of style, and emotive presence. The first figure (titled New Balance) is softer, and innocently androgynous or child-like. He/she becomes slightly whimsical and animated with the stacking of seashells and fish, but maintains a serious demeanor in his delicate balancing act. The bowed branch in his hands makes a beautiful sweeping gesture across his torso, creating equilibrium in which to appreciate the elements. While the shell adornments are attached, there’s also a sensation they’re of them, rather than simply on him.
