Fat Lady Series

The “Fat Lady” series.

This series is very much in progress and I plan to make at least five more “Fat” ladies.

The “fat Lady” series is one of those groups of figures that just have to find expression, and no rhyme or reason can prevent it.

I am possessed by a need to embody a highly symbolic religiosity in these over sized female forms.

Hippo Libido, the sculpture directly below is situated in the window of a high end Persian rug store on a busy street and people are drawn in to take a closer look. The symbolism begs many questions in regard to flipping ‘fat male power figures’ and making them female. The hair on Hippo-Libido was inspired by Michael Angelo’s figures on the Medici Tomb.
