After studying ballet and contemporary dance, Kathy Prest became increasingly interested in the movement of the human body, and fascinated with anatomy.
This inspired her to create sculptures using the enigmatic body of a dancer as it becomes simplified when caught in a moment of time, even when twisted in a complex shape it still expresses the joy in the spirit and beauty of the human figure. Kathy believes there is no better way to train the sculptor’s skills than traditional classical study of the nude model.
With this essential knowledge in hand, the figure can then be confidently created and abstracted to an individual style. Passion for the human form provides inspiration that is insatiable, an endless source of pleasure and respect for such a wonderful creation. Through her sculptures, Kathy tries to reach the minds and hearts of fellow human beings by freezing moments and transforming them into sensual and tactile sculptures.
