Year of Artwork: 2015
Medium: cast resin

In "Prenuptial" (2015), a solemn and symmetrical grouping of male swimmers, cast in black resin with classically svelte bodies and vintage swimsuits, look forward as they prepare to dive. Each figure maintains the same fixed glare, motionless and without any apparent emotion. All but one, who chooses an audacious hand stand position from which to prepare his dive. In the middle of this rectangular formation, a single male figure in bright turquoise stands apart.

This work celebrates self-expression and self-determination over conformity. Even as each figure toys with the tension of diving, the figure in turquoise chooses his own way, illustrating an important lesson of individualism in the face of societal norms.

Each figure is cast in resin from a hand-sculpted form. Each installation is site specific, made to order, and available in various sizes. The cost for an individual figure is $250.00.

UPS or FEDEX only *no PO Boxes* Large installations may require delicate shipping procedures at an extra cost. Packing and shipping will be added to all purchases. PLEASE PM hi@emilykimballart.com w/questions.
