Lady on a Pedestal no.1

“Lady on a pedestal no.1” 2019

carrara marble, approx 50cm (h)


This sculpture celebrates the figure. A lady leans on a pedestal, relaxed and happy. Curves and limbs lead the eye around the figure, negative spaces invite the viewer in. All the while the lady calmly gazes outwards.



This the first of a seriesĀ  of female figures interacting with polished pedestals. This piece is carved from one block of carrara marble. The series came about as a play on the idea of putting someone up on a pedestal. I plan to make a corresponding group of the male figure with pedestals also.
