F. Chopin

I sculptured composer Fredrick Chopin using historic artistic and photographic images and a live model for bone structure to create his likeness. I transformed his wispy hair into a Divi Divi Tree to symbolize the link between Curacao and music that has so influenced the culture on this small Caribbean island. The clay sculpture was presented at the Bicentennial Chopin Concert held in the Fortchurch on Curacao featuring pianist Harold Martina. Now I am seeking a sponsor to cast this work of art in bronze so it will become a lasting tribute to the influence Chopin has had on her island home of Curacao. Born in Poland this is a very meaningful project for me.
