Rebecca Warren, MC (2008 - 2012), 2012.
Hand-shaped from clay and cast in bronze, Rebecca Warren’s sculptures evoke a raw, rough-hewn physicality and an earthy sensuality. Deeply engaged with the history of sculpture and particularly the sculpture of the female nude – historically a predominantly male tradition – the curved, lumped, pulled and pinched forms of Warren’s sculptures present an often ribald and always refreshingly contemporary perspective.
Comprised of a curvaceous pair of female legs pointed upward, with a playful cat carefully perched on the left foot, ‘Untitled’ plays on the non-finito state of classical statues. The whimsical and delicately hand-painted tartan of pale pink, baby blue and buttercup yellow disrupts the immediacy of the hand-sculpted form and belies the weighty mass of the solid bronze beneath. Exuberant and irreverent, ‘Untitled’ exemplifies the signature strength and humour of Warren’s work.
Released on the occasion of the publication of the monograph "Every Aspect of Bitch Magic", 'Untitled' comes in a beautifully designed black box and with a copy of the publication signed and numbered by the artist in a matching slipcase.
