Sharon Loper's current body of work in bronze, primarily male and female nudes, have a sense of detachment, a fierce independence in their attitudes. The figures, alone, elongated, contained, and graceful speak wordlessly of complex, internal emotional states, like performers in a choreographed ballet. Objects of desire, familiar yet remote, the figures seduce the viewer into their self-absorbed thoughts. The art is a fiction, a metaphor removed from the reality that inspired it.
