an award-winning bronze sculpture
by sculptor Laury Dizengremel
|A heroic size
(larger than lifesize) fragment of a bust. Winner of the Prix de Portrait Paul
Louis Weiller, Musée des Beaux-Arts, Paris, France 1986
Also winner of the Chelsea Arts Society Award for Sculpture, London, England 1992
There's a sad story behind this sculpture portrait... in more ways than one.
It is larger than lifesize (twice lifesize), and originally I modelled the clay using an old B movie actress from Hollywood as a model. Hard life, hard lines, chain-smoking lady... I included the neck at the time, and created her entire portrait or bust in the round. The finished piece in bronze has this great broken fragment aspect about it - relevant in that my mother was dying in Paris at the time I was casting it - and the back of the waste mould broke into a thousand irreparable pieces. It has received excellent feedback from a variety of sources, so really out of the bleakness of grief both in the model and the casting circumstances came something extremely positive.
