About Vanessa Pooley

About the artwork

Happy Baby (with straight hair), 20 x 13 x 17cm, is a bronze sculpture with a base, by British sculptor Vanessa Pooley. As with most of her works, this sculpture highlights the purest form of connection between a mother and her child. Unlike some of her more still and solid sculptures, ‘Happy Baby (with straight hair)’ manages to capture a sense of energy as the poses of both figures are dynamic. The work, nevertheless, explores the fundamental bond between a mother and her child, but perhaps focuses more on the fun and playful side of the relationship.

Pooley is fascinated by the representation of the female form, making sure to highlight its flowing curves and lines. She is mainly inspired by ample proportions and not conventionally beautiful models. She includes few details on her figures as the overall shape of her sculptures and the creation of negative space is of most importance to her. Pooley starts by moulding her sculptures in clay which are later cast in bronze. She rarely knows what the sculpture will look like before she starts, so this method allows for constant and easy alteration throughout the process.
