Natasha Sedaghat, Figurative Sculptor
I have had a life-long passion for art that was fully realized when I began to sculpt 10 years ago. As a life drawing student, I fell in love with the intricacies of the human form but also felt hindered by two dimensional paper and canvas.
The clay, rendered from the earth, offers the full circle of the human experience…our connection to the earth, its ability to nourish our bodies and souls, and provider of the essence of our creativity- the natural world.
Sculpture has given me the means to express the beauty, strength and integrity of the female form. My bronze sculptures embody the power of women, not only physically but also psychologically. Women must juggle the challenges of fulfilling the myriad of roles they are to uphold…mother, wife, breadwinner while at the same time breaking societal norms in order to obtain their own truth.
My terracotta sculptures represent the duality of women – the ability to be fragile and strong all at once, and yet preserving the uniqueness of each woman; a single terracotta sculpture that is unmolded and therefore unreproducible.My transparent acrylic sculptures convey the emotional range, grace and frenetic energy of the female experience through color…
Scarlet reveals a woman’s vibrancy, strength, flesh and blood provider of human life.
Amber…Light; a steady, soft warm glow that nurtures our families, communities and planet.
Lavender….the peacemaker, voice of reason, the steadfast hand guiding future generations.
Blue…overcoming loss and life challenges.
