Abstract:

Strong-Cuevas sculpts powerful, larger than life pieces that can hold sway on a hilltop, and conjure up tribal pieces from Africa or Oceania. In this film, we follow her from her studio in Amagansett, Long Island to the foundry up the Hudson where her pieces take their final shape in its glowing furnace. With an exacting eye, she works with the staff of experts to refine the shape and burnish the finish. For those who have never seen the genesis of a larger -than -life statue, this is an education in the science and craft of sculpture. Some of Strong- Cuevas pieces may be seen in the famed Grounds for Sculpture, a 22-acre sculpture park in New Jersey. This illuminating documentary allows us to see how an artist's personal vision translates into a work of art. "Strong-Cuevas bronze sculptures contain a great deal of psychic energy. Isolated facial features removed from context, enclosed mysterious spaces, meticulously polished surfaces and a certain ritualistic quality, all help to generate this spiritual feeling" The New York Times.
