Denise Carletta / Fine Art / Sculpture / Woman in Yellow

$ 450.00

For a side table, book shelf, on top of a stack of artist books on your coffee table–the painterly figurative Woman in Yellow sculpture with her outstretched legs is compelling, emotive and provocative. Super accessible in size and form and a wonderful painted clay with resin. From the artist: "I am captivated by the human figure and the way a gesture can speak to us. A simple truth through simple forms, this is what inspires me to create sculptures."

Denise talks about how her inspiration is often about exposing ourselves, our true selves, whoever that is. And how much work it is to embrace that part of our nature.

"I have always lived what I felt, balancing on the rim of the bowl sort of speak, for which my art held me on and kept me from falling… By adding and taking away clay and mark making with my tools, personas emerge in a captured moment. I focus on minimal details to portray the story the figure has. The emotional weight of each piece is expressed thru that gesture. I am compelled to find the single gesture that captures the essential meaning of that figure’s story. This speaks to me on multiple levels." ~ Denise Carletta
