“What do you mean?”
“I’ve always focused on realism. My previous sculptures were always lifelike. That’s what I am known for.”
“So why the change in style?”
“I started this as a sitting figure. My model was a young woman who worked at the gallery. She posed when it was quiet. Over time, we became lovers.”
“And she inspired you toward the abstract?”
“No, not at all. It was my wife. She discovered my infidelity, and took to the work with a sledgehammer. With only one day before the opening, this was the only way I could salvage something.”
