Change + Angel = Changel
The first picture is the original piece which I felt rather depressed about, so kitsch, so out of proportion, so undefined. So, I decided that before I bake her, I should take her apart, re-sculpt her, meaning take her clothes off, give her some more realistic features including actual elbows, knees, the cartoonish hands must become individual fingers, and toes, larger breasts, and a more protruding belly, she is not pregnant. The final result is a sculpture although masculine, is a feminine realization reminiscent of “The Thinker” by Auguste Rodin.
