#266 In the studio: Style

By stripping the figure of the unessential, can a fresh discovery be made?

Every artist who evolves a style does so from illusive elements 
that inhabit his or her visual storehouse; 
but the actual breakthrough in the privacy of the studio, 
when one dares to [sculpt] in a new manner, 
is a solitary thrill, dependent upon no one else.  
It is the individual artist who must act courageously in an effort to grow.
                                                                         - Mary Carroll Nelson
