The heads I make remind me of phrenology heads, we sometimes see in pharmacies.
The heads have become more abstract, and colours remind us of feelings. The nose has become an important feature.

Sculptor Bio

Feyona Van Stom

Feyona Van Stom

Drawing and painting where I started. Egon Scheile's artworks - angular hands - stretching fingers, fascinating. He took colours and muted them. Shades of personality peeked through. I see people differently, make them my way. I want movement - even unnatural movement. We are what we want to be. Large, small, bright, dark. My ladies dance, walk, move, twist. No two alike.

China - a huge step, amazing honour, sculpting 3 metres tall, faces watching. Positive feedback. Translating to people who once were my people. Feeling part of a huge population. Artists and artworks. Never stop. Never want to stop.
