One of the means to success is to have perseverance in doing something despite the difficulty or time it takes to achieve success. I have practiced this in my career and in my life. It is the impetus behind my creating the sculpture seen above.
I hope you enjoy this video made by the talented Jesse Bass. It discusses emotional strength, my internal coping abilities and fortitude I needed to deal with the challenges I faced in my life. I hope it can be an inspiration for all those talented artists and people who follow me.
I named this sculpture ‘The Midpoint"‘. It depicts a young girl who has just become a young woman. OOH, to be eighteen again!
This video shows, not only my sculpture ‘ Kendall Island’ seen above, but ten of my outdoor sculptures gracing Marinaressa Garden in Venice Italy.
When the young woman seen in my sculpture ‘Contemplation’ posed for me, she was deep in reflection, pondering the avenues of her life and where she wanted to be in the future. I believe that we should all take a little time to meditate each day and contemplate not only our day, but our direction.
Enjoy this beautiful video about a day in my life.
‘Chrysalis’ is the form a caterpillar takes before it emerges from its canon fully formed into a beautiful butterfly.
In my sculpture Leda and the Swan, we see a figure embellished with gold and crystals lounging on a painted swan. Upon further contemplation, the piece really embraces the eroticism associated with much of Greek mythology, while telling the story of deceit and treachery. Leda, is portrayed in a 1020’s bathing suit, but was really influenced by a Greek fable going back in time. In the story, the God Zeus, who was disguised as a swan, seduces Leda who then bore Helen of Troy.
I remember when the sculpture was in Venice at Palazzo Mora and it needed its own bodyguard because so many people wanted to touch it.
A beach ball is a large ball filled with ait that people play with, especially when they go to the beach. Above we see ‘Bibi’ having a perfect day, something we all want on our day of leisure.
Bibi on the Ball was inspired by my love of the beach and the enjoyment of the simple things in life. Remember, always live in the moment.
Please join me on ISDay, International Sculpture Day, in my studio at Mana Contemporary.
Christina is a girl who dreams of being a traveler. In her dreamlike state above, she wonders whee her next adventure will take her.
In this video you can watch me put water drops on my sculpture ‘ Balance’ and spend a day with me in my studio.
When I created Yaima and the Ball,I created a hyper-realistic sculpture that is as much about athleticism and strength as it is about dependency. In real life, Yaima is an Olympic volleyball player for Cuba. In the sculpture I made, she stands tall, towering over the viewer with both presence and dominance. She is solid and muscular, commanding the space she resides in, and the same time within this immense confidence and strength she displays, she must lean on the pedestal to give herself balance and stability. We must all lean at one time or another because it takes a team to be mighty
This is how to spend the perfect day, on a tube with a crystal crown on our head.
