Sculpture description:
Fleming carved this life-size sculpture in Greek "Kozani" marble during the 2013 Greek Marble Initiative symposium in Thessaloniki, Greece. Please see Artist comments.
Artist's comments:
In August and September, 2013, During the Greek Marble Initiative, I carved the sculpture titled "Diving Woman II" from a 4-ton block of Kozani marble. A vertical, diving female figure, in high relief, is captured in the split-second before her fingertips break the surface of the water. The sculpture is life-size, modeled on my wife, sculptor Sherry Tipton and stands 250cm (8 feet) tall. The figure is nude, feminine and athletic. In this sculpture,I present a woman who personifies great confidence and daring. She is strong, physically, emotionally and intellectually and is taking a bold risk. She is ready to take this leap of chance. And she does so with grace, beauty and style.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."

Customer comment on 'Beautiful Nails - Commissioned' by Shaun Gagg
The sculptures arrived in the meantime and on weekend I brought them home to my private house/garden.

They arrived in a perfect condition and when I have opened them I was speechless Shaun, they look great.

I got the picture from you where I could see them before but in reality they look much more better !!! JJJ

I am really happy thank you so much that you made them for me.

They will get a perfect place in my garden ... [Read more]
