This new series follows the shapes of the fallen wood Denise has collected. The sensuous form in Vol 1, a large female sculpture (22" long), shows the beauty of the figure and the edges of the woods. In repose, mounted on stone. 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.
