“Women in White" is a series several years in the making, comprised of 10 female figures in white translucent alabaster in a variety of sitting or reclining positions. The series was recently noted in the magazine "American Art Collector."
International sculptor Robert Hooke has recently completed his series, “Women in White.” It was several years in the making and is comprised of 10 female figures in white translucent alabaster in a variety of sitting or reclining positions. There are three small sitting figures 10 inches high, four medium size reclining figures 15 inches wide, and three larger siting pieces 16 inches high. As with his other figurative work, Hooke has emphasized his “less is more” doctrine. The sculptures are simplistic yet sophisticated, tactile, and easy on the eye as one’s gaze follows the smooth curves of each female figure. They are all familiar poses, which allows one to identify with each piece and feel comfortable with its presence. Proportional balance, not exact anatomy or detail, is a hallmark of Hooke’s work, but he is still able to capture the essence of the moment. The prices range from $4,000 to $10,000. Robert Hooke is currently exhibiting in Miami, Newport, Saratoga Springs and the Hamptons. The art magazine American Art Collector has taken note of this new series in it’s July issue.
