The life-size full-figured nude Kardashian sculpture titled “L.A. Fertility” stands curvaceous and proud, with lactiferous breasts, protruding navel and legs akimbo, and features a voluminous belly “designed to entice visitors to give a respectful rub for good luck and success,” says publicist Cory Allen.
Other works in the exhibit will include bronzes of Baby Kimye, depicted as a chubby-cheek-cherub with a swirl design pattern shaved in the hair and the Royal Baby, slumbering peacefully in the crown Queen Elizabeth wore as a princess, cast at the Cal State foundry currently managed by Edwards. The artist’s prenatal portraits of the angel-winged celebrity fetuses titled “Womb Mates” will also be on display.
“I was inspired by the beauty of Kim Kardashian and felt quite put-off by the media’s criticism of her weight gain during pregnancy,” said artist Daniel Edwards. “Such criticism should be off limits.”
“We live in a media-absorbed culture where anyone can access and share a celebrity’s most intimate moments,” said Cory Allen. “Daniel visually captures ‘that’ intimacy.”
The Venice Family Clinic's annual fundraiser, the Venice Art Walk & Auctions, recently featured limited edition prints of Edwards’ Baby Kimye sculpture printed by L.A. based Intellectual Property Prints. Proceeds went to provide health care to families in need.
“L.A. Fertility” will debut at LAB ART Gallery, on June 5th, 2013 at 11:00 AM, located at 217 S. La Brea Avenue in Los Angeles, California. For more info, contact Cory Allen at 323-393-3115 or visit www.cacanet.com.
