The cusp

Sculpture, XXI century, 3.6×1×1.9 cm

Description of the artwork «The cusp»

A female spirit awoke in the city of N.

Several of my sculptures will live in the heart of the city until March 27th.
Here the story touches on the deep inner nature of the heart. Come, feel, meditate.

The first description of The Cusp appeared for a private auction, where the statuette was first presented to the public.
It took over a year to work on it. The model appeared before the pandemic and now seems to have acquired a new meaning. The Cambridge Dictionary speaks of a peak, a ledge, a point of inflection - all this characterizes a fluid feminine nature. On this subject I highly recommend the book "Running with Wolves".
For a long time I have been studying amulets, protective and magical objects, objects of power. My search for local distinctive clothing led me to an inspiring photograph of an Erzya girl (see /media/%D0%A4%D0%B0%D0%B9%D0%BB:SUK119_89.jpg with description). Thus the idea of mutability was born. Clash of inner and outer worlds, the impact of progress on mentality.

The year 2020-21 also reflects the idiom - "breath of fresh air" - another meaning of The Cusp. This period helped to draw attention to those areas of life to which we did not pay much attention. Time for rebirth and adaptation. Stress, change and observation. Transition to a new world.
