An Portrait of the Artist
I drove into Long Island City today for a tour at a museum there - more on that in another post. The museum was near Socrates Park which has a large display of sculpture on display. I was walking around the park, and met this delightful young artist. Her name is Tanda Francis and she is making a piece of sculpture on site, where it will be displayed. In the background of this photo, over the artist's shoulder, is a a maquette (a small model) of a head. She will be making a sculpture of the head, in clay, which will cover the wooden structure in the photo, which makes the finished piece about ten feet tall! We had a nice conversation about some of the technical steps she will go through to produce this giant sculpture.
