Assertion...

Many public sculptures seem to place the male figure in poses that imply stoic strength and certainty, often backed up by physical might. In contrast, the female figure is often portrayed in stances of submission or in poses that convey a fuller range of emotions, from trust through to vulnerability. This series explores this mixing of strength and softness. However, as a male sculptor, I wonder whether this subject is ‘meant’ to be left to female sculptors?
