Sculpture description:
The dress figure series encompasses a group of works, though light hearted and whimsical they are however highly complex and multi layered using the dress as a symbol of woman hood. There is a magic power to clothing to substitute for their owner, the absent portrait of one person. The woman?s ?dress? has become so essential a part of her persona that it appears devoid of its owner. Like a ghostly stand in for herself, a second skin which has never totally assimilated to the person hidden under it but so integral to her that even when it was taken off, it retained something of the wearers being. In the gown we find ourselves, and we are as children taking on a role and playing at a part. We can be anyone and anything we perceive as the dress is the skin we choose to show to the world. This face is the mask, the outer expression of an inner destination. We collect many faces that come with memories of other times and places and people. We wear them again trying to emulate or relive people or times gone by. We illuminate ourselves to the world, project ourselves and others project an image onto us.

In one context they incorporate themes of femininity using the symbols of the fairy tale, while overshadowing them with the skeptical and cynical adult perspective. The reoccurring theme is one where prince charming comes to rescue the damsel in distress, the knight in shinning armor is absent but an implied part of the story, the relevance of this is left to the opinion of the viewer. What if this knight in shinning armor does show up, will this serve to complete the perfect life she desires? Is this an absurd and demeaning outcome in today?s society, or a timeless romantic lesson regarding true happiness? This is a matter of perspective but either way the viewer is the participant in the mirror.

Customer comment on 'Sidewind 2 (Bronze abstract Figures in wind statue)' by Plamen Dimitrov
