Denise Carletta / Fine Art / Sculpture / Bust 1 Male

$ 600.00

The head angle of this pinched pottery clay bust is full of emotion. Artist Denise Carletta 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. She also says, "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."

This male bust sculpture in black clay adds a touch of the dramatic to a side table, book shelf, on top of a stack of artist books on your coffee table. A compelling, emotive and provocative artwork yet super accessible in size and form.  

"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
