Wendy Hendelman White Alabaster Head Sculpture, 2014

About

Contemporary American sculptor Wendy Hendelman's white alabaster head sculpture on a marble base. Hendelman’s work reflects her love of the primitive and the ancient. The small scale and style have established her identity as a sculptor as was recognized in the following press release by a Parisian art dealer: “For me, the most astonishing element within each of Hendelman’s stone figures is that she has enabled the stone to speak in understated harmony. Aside from restrained carving, it is impossible not to surround the figures with visions of a heroic and compelling human journey. In Hendelman’s work, it is the breath of life within the cold artifact that makes the journey irresistible and rewarding.” This piece is sold with a Certificate of Authenticity from the artist. Additional pieces of Wendy Hendelman sculpture available through Highland Park, please contact the dealer for more information. Provenance: Acquired directly from the artist. Artist's Brief Bio: Native New Yorker and artist Wendy Hendelman grew up surrounded by art. The highly praised protégé of renowned sculptor Chaim Gross who once called her gift “unique”. Studying under the great teachers José de Creeft and Andrea Grassi, and having held residence at Italy’s famed Pietrasanta, her work was most recently profiled by Anthony Haden-Guest and has shown in galleries worldwide.
