Re: Artistic goals of nude sculpture
I don't see eroticism in many figurative sculptors' work. If it makes its way into the figure, it is very much detectable and it seems to be at odds with achieving more than just that: eroticism. The statement seems almost silly when I think of Giacometti, Michelangelo or Ron Mueck. I think it's an interesting mix when it is present not as a primary goal or concern, but an accompanying means, such as I see in Javier Marin's work.
