The She Structures

The female torso is a recurring theme in my work. I like the idea of the sculptural structure suggesting or describing the form of the body it no longer contains. I made the first series of 5 torsos, which I called the She Structures, in 1998. From 1998 to 2005, I continued to work with the same basic form, the headless, armless female wire torso altering the silhouette slightly. Some of the other silhouettes are inspired by swimsuit and corset forms.
