‘Baby what you want me to do’
It’s what Elvis sang in 1968 and its got me wondering how he’d want me to sculpt his bronze. So the hunt is on for the right pose, as I’ve a mind to sculpt him ‘live’ at the forthcoming SHARDS exhibition in Bournemouth, UK, this summer. Elvis is regarded as one of the most significant cultural icons of the 20th century, so it’s a tall order to reflect him in a way that does justice to his achievement.
He presented so many faces to the world during his career it’ll be a real puzzle as to which epitomises him for me. A great challenge for a great artist – Elvis that is!
