About A Void

Frances Semple’s beautiful and elegant sculptures often appear in motion. Defying gravity, a horizontal figure appears to float on its back above its shadow. This table top piece is made of resin and has a black wood base. Is the title a reference to the biblical use of the word void which means a ‘place of formlessness or emptiness?’
Edition four of nine. Also available in bronze, ask for pricing.

“One of my long-standing curiosities is the way internal and external forces pass through our lives leaving their mark like weather on a landscape. I use the human figure as a vehicle to explore the form and textures from these observations." Frances Semple
