Figurative stone sculpture by Suzanna Scott.
Stone presents an immediate physical and mental challenge and offers an aura of timeless solidity. I thrive on the physical activity of carving stone and I approach the carving process very intuitively, mentally envisioning the volume of each form and its contours as I begin to carve. Carving involves constant communication between the stone and myself. Although I may begin with a rough sketch, a definite process of action/reaction occurs as the piece develops.
Throughout my work I incorporate the female nude, a timeless subject. Whether the piece is erotic or playful, I strive to acknowledge the beauty of its transfiguration and integrate forms which are simultaneously sensuous and raw.
