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.
