Him and Her
A male figure leaning against a female figure.
The female figure is holding all her pain in the chest,
absorbing her pain, hidden.
THE DANCE: The taller, female figure is leaning into the male hoping to get support. Instead, she becomes a vessel for the pain in the marriage/family/life.
After a relationship ends, what is left? Where do you hold your pain?
This piece is carved from a terracotta colored Alabaster. Marble's origins actually lie in marine organisms that leave behind their calcite-rich shells when they die. As water bodies evaporate, these deposited remains form Limestone.
Created in 2009.
