‘If you’re going to be two faced, at least make one of them pretty’
One of Marilyn Monroe’s famous quotes and an insight into the complex and much misjudged girl who became an icon even before her death.
She’s the subject of my next ‘Icons & Legends’ series but her complex nature and many faces has me foxed at the moment for the best way to portray her – the seemingly innocent and exploited child or the canny and street-wise starlet, or a mix of both. Marilyn was, and for me still is, a challenge that has set me thinking and looking for inspiration. I’m really looking forward to getting under her skin and will keep you posted as my thought processes and sculpture develop.
