Not a thinker

This is the result of the first three week sculpture rotation in which we had to use linear materials (cardboard, paper, wire) to make a constructed sculpture from a model who sat for us for 3 mornings.  Inspired by the idea of drawing around the figure, I made the form of the head, neck and shoulders.  The hollow interior with no thinking equipment inside the empty space meant she could have no personality, or face with which to express herself.. so I left an empty space at the front.

 

Now that I have finished making her I find the dark hole of her head and the way it channels towards the throat demanding in some way and the emptiness quite poignant.. but I feel there is more to say.  Her empty headedness may indicate tranquility, or emptyness as in unthinking foolishness.
