Weekly Photo Challenge – Masterpiece
Masterpiece commissioned for me by my husband for my 50th birthday. The artist is Robert Stagemyer. After numerous discussions with the artist he created this wonderful sculpture entitled “Breaking Free”. It was to be representative of the transition that many women go through when they reach a pinnacle age; whatever age that might be. I felt a new road was before me. This treasured gift, I was given, of this masterpiece created by this artist was a sculpture that would represent my new individuality.
The surface of “Breaking Free” is natural, eggshell white, acrylic-fiber stone that I developed, for wall-sculptures. It is durable, lightweight, and easily maintained. The total weight of this sculpture is 45 pounds.
“Breaking Free”, according to the artist’s vision, is a woman transgressing from one life lived into another. The broken pieces on the body represent the birth of a new woman. The wild hair was his impression of me becoming the free spirit of who I was going to be. His discreet placement of fabric over the nude woman gave the sculpture a sensitivity of integrity.
