Profile image of M.C. CarolynThe artwork of M.C.CAROLYN includes a wide range of visual statements about the human condition. She began as the youngest person to be allowed into the nude model drawing classes at the San Francisco Museum of Art. Human forms took life in stone as she taught herself to carve. The continued correspondence between MCC and Isamu Noguchi supported her desire to create stone environments that pulled the viewer around and across her sculpture. Isamu Noguchi answered her question regarding her frustration about the smaller sizes of her sculpture. He...

Sculpture description:
This unique piece of black steatite (soapstone) was chosen by M.C.CAROLYN for its amazing color and dense texture on a visit to the Virginia, USA, quarry. The sculptor has used many surface polishes/finishes that give the woman’s head/arm a soft polish and then changes into a high polish on her skirt. Carving tool marks are left for additional textures in her hair and rasp marks in her skirt. As with other sculpture, i.e. “The Thinker” by Rodin, edges have been meticulously given a high polish as if often touched by viewers. This sculpted woman has fallen downward and joins to create a new form similar to a tombstone.
Artist's comments:
M.C.CAROLYN has caught the moment when this woman first heard of a death. It is as though she is breathless, has collapsed and falls forward. Her skirt of simple planes is defined by her legss. Isamu Noguchi once told me in our ongoing correspondence … that the creation of forms in space are the same regardless of the size of the sculpture. Edges of this sculpture appear to have areas worn smooth by hands touching, consoling her. MCC has patrons tell her that this “Grief” statue should be used as a Memorial.
