When my artwork is the size of an adult torso, it asserts it’s presence and feels menacing. Relating to these implicitly sexual forms on a small scale becomes an intimate experience, literally requiring a close look by the viewer. Between the unreal monochromism of the white forms and their small scale, the sexual content has become non- threatening.
The very sexual Venus of Willendorf is small, 4 3/8 inches tall, about the right size to hold in your hand.
