A New Statue by Stuart Sandford


A little while ago the British artist Stuart Sandford caused something of a stir with his life-sized statue Sebastian, using a professional male fashion model (called Sebastian) in his underwear 'shooting' himself with a camera rather than a bow there were obvious classical references as well as clearly contemporary commentary. At the end of last month Sandford announced another statue, again made with 3D scanning technology but this time fabricated in aluminium and then painted and as the artist himself tweeted, "this time naked". It is a private commission based on Frederick Leighton's 1880s statue, "The Sluggard"
