Letter to Hefner

What I'm doing is using contemporary "iconic

personalities" and sculpting a likeness of their face and

figure using classical/mythological sculpting formats of

the past. Of course, this is couched in a wonderfully

irreverent "ironic" sensibility. You for example because

of your charismatic, dynamic and innovative personality

and lifestyle have inspired me to do a sculpture

thematically based on " Leda and Swan".. depicting of

course the erotic adventures of Zeus. The sculpture

will initially be made in plaster but it could be then

transformed into mixture of marble, bronze and glass all

materials which I work with on a regular basis.
