The sculptures belong together and form a sequence. They are quarried stones in which the worked and unworked stone merge into each other. They represent three female torsos in different conditions whose character of tenderness is underlined by the internal warmth of the salmon-coloured marble. Pain and beauty stand alongside each other.


Torn Apart
The first sculpture "Torn Apart" shows deep pain. The torso has only been half worked out of the stone. Both on the worked and unworked sides blasting traces have been left which appear as deep injuries in the body. The torso appears very tender; only from the front arises the impression of a full body while from the side the fragility becomes visible, especially in the solar plexus area, the centre of power of the self.
