Details: Cast glass sculpture titled and dated "Archetype Feminine Torso -1994" and signed by the artist, Susan Batien Gott. The artist's sculptures are known for having primitive qualities and metaphors, which are her visual representations of the Cycles of Life. Gott's work reveals itself in layers by diffusing or transmitting light through the material; transparent or opaque, polished or rough, exposing or disguising the interior. According to the artist, casting and blowing glass often involves ladling the molten glass directly from the furnace with direct, hands-on manipulation of the material, which can be ritualistic and intense. However, the cast glass combined with her aesthetic concerns, allows an articulate, yet raw method of expressing her connection of the ancient with the contemporary. This piece is surmounted on a 5" square green marble base.
