Andromeda Andromeda
$ 3150.00 In stock
Product description: Andromeda is an exploration of contrasting expansion/restraint, hard/soft, alive/dead. I modeled a humanistic form in terra cotta, and then bound it in a wrapping of rusty wire which was welded to a steel base. I did not intend any 'story' or irony here - only a contemplation of the opposing forces. The name is not a reference to the myth, just to a common description of the constellation: "the lady in the chair".
