Licking Your Lips (Grandes Lèvres)

This soft sculpture, Licking Your Lips, is created from found rope. Woven in three dimensions on a hand-made artisanal loom, the work is filled with molded foam stuffing, which enables it to stay plump. The sisal, hemp, and linen rope comes from a variety of sources; most of the material was previously used in agriculture or shipping. Collection of the Fondation des Etats-Unis, Paris.
