Sculpture description:
Contemporary Nude Girl`s Torso sculpture, A sculpture that wonderfully collides forms of classical antiquity with pop and avant garde; perhaps a bit surreal, too. It is a paper sculpture saturated with plaster and then painted, a traditional Southern Italian technique that the artist learned in Lecce. After her training, Palamidessi subsequently reinvigorated the art form by folding and moulding paper and wire into human shapes to indicate the stories and past-future lives we carry within us. The inside looks like the sky; the outside hard as bone.
Artist's comments:
I adore this sculpture and have it in my house right now, inside the fireplace on top of a retired coal grate. It looks amazing and very interesting. (see picture) There`s many layers--the ancient, the personal, and, of course, the paradox of how we humans consider ourselves as independent wholes even though we are actually parts of an interdependent universe.

Dear Peter
