A Modern Bronze Female Sculpture by Laurel Peterson Gregory
6″h × 1 1/8″w × 1″d
This is Woman. It didn’t take me long to determine the title to this piece, which I think speaks for itself.
Like most sculptors, my first explorations of the sculptural medium involved the human figure. I was trained in classical methods, sculpting from models and making each piece look as realistic as possible. All artists start somewhere, and that study was the foundation of my current stylized work, including this lovely female sculpture.
As an artist I am in constant inquiry into various sculptural forms of expression. After a long run of animals, I had been interested in returning to the human figure and settled on trying to express the essence of woman. My goal here was to create a simple form that also spoke to the lumps and bumps a female experiences as she travels through life. This is a moment when we proudly honor our femininity.
It blows my mind how so much can be said in just a few ounces of bronze. Sometimes big things do come in small packages.
