Valentine Kiss is a minimalist, Pop-art sculpture
The piece is an abstract image of a woman - just long legs, hot lips, big kiss
Her legs are clad in smoky silver, her cherry-red lips held playfully open
The legs and base are made from solid steel, finished in anodized smoke-silver and varnished with linseed oil to present a sheen and prevent oxidation. The lips are cut art-glass mounted on a quarter-inch, rippled cast-glass slab. The wave of the ripples shows through the streaked red lips and catches the light in an especially striking manner. The base is industrial steel plate - in keeping with its pop-art heritage - that is finished to show a very gently mottled texture
Both witty and, at the same time, a piece of serious art the sculpture projects a bold, sexy , eye-catching flair. Its combination of color, form and texture is sure to generate conversation
I use recycled steel whenever I can find the quality and provenance of metal I need, but fine art-glass. The glass for Long Legs is from Kokomo.
The original piece was bought for an apartment full of art-work in Manhattan. I would love to make one on commission for you. When you buy the sculpture we can work together on variations to the dimensions, the color and form of the lips and the finish on the steel.
