Talking With a Friend - Marianne Hornbuckle
This figure captures the casual intimacy that accompanies a modern quest for openness and friendship. She embodies the earnest inquiry and frank comfort that is a physical hallmark of living comfortably in one's skin.
Marianne completed "Talking with a Friend" during the first year of sculpting from life with plastilina clay (oil-based). Two other bronze editions are of her. Modeling for sculpture requires strength and athleticism, and she fits the bill as a bicyclist, roller-blader, and hiker. She is a fine sculptor herself, and now teaches sculpture in Indiana. Her friend's athleticism and strength is evident in all three.
