...just the nearness of you
"I wanted to sculpt a young couple, finding romantic love â€“ the butterflies and uncertainty, the chemistry and electricity â€“ discovered when youâ€™re in each otherâ€™s presence. I wanted the piece to be tender and intimate, elegant and quietâ€¦ Since the pose is derived from dance, I also wanted it to appear to have movement as you look at different angles.
"My challenge was to carve completely in the round, so that from every view, you have a different understandingâ€¦ you see variations. Thereâ€™s no correct way to position the piece.
"There are three touch points â€“ their fingers on both hands, and the tops of their heads. I like this bit of connectionâ€¦ the tingly excitement and shared energy that comes from moments together with a new love." - Susan Lordi
