In Sherry Tipton`s sculpture, line is everything. By this I mean the profile the form creates when viewed from the combination of any point on the compass and any elevation. As a viewer moves around the sculpture, the line constantly changes and must work with the overall composition and meaning.
Carved Stone Nude Female Torso of a Girl or Young Woman Angel in Bondage sculpture, carving, statue for sale, by the accomplished American Sculptress Sherry Tipton. It is Suitable Outside in the Yard or Outdoors in the Garden as a decorative Focal Point.
Carving this piece was my first experience using power and air tools. The stone started out weighing around 170 pounds, soon after beginning I discovered that it had many deep fissures, causing me to seriously consider abandoning it. Over time, however, I came to see the perfection of these flaws and how they relate and contribute to the piece - meaning that if a person is moving through life in this helpless position, then inevitably a rotting deterioration begins from the inside out.
