Soft Sculpture

Soft Sculpture of Sue Angel (journalist) with soft cup of coffee and book. Cafe Solea, Newtown, Sydney. Walking the streets in Newtown in 1999, art in shop windows sponsored by the shops, during Newtown festival. This soft sculpture was made of Sue Angel who covered important environmental issues that other journalists would not cover. I made the soft sculpture in my studio at the back of Marilyn's house. It took a quite a few sleepless nights. Marilyn brought me out cups of tea to keep me awake. I made the sculpture to fit in the back of my bike trailer, so I could get it to the location with ease. The sculpture was talked about by critics on the opening night where everyone walks up and down the street with glasses of champagne.
