Caught in a solitary moment, The Bather has no idea that anyone might be watching her reveal that fragile, yet nurturing quality, of a woman.
The original inspiration came from a 1988 exhibition of Edgar Degas where I found such calm in his paintings as the viewer is allowed to intrude upon the fragility and femininity of a beautiful woman performing self-rituals.
The model’s name for this piece was Veronique, and three other artists and myself employed her so she could make more money.
The Bather is one of the first works I created in one-quarter life-size proportion and this has remained the preferred dimension for my sculpture.
