Photographer's Note

'Beyond Limits' sale of modern and contemporary sculpture at Chatsworth House, Derbyshire.

This piece is a new sculpture of Kate Moss by artist Marc Quinn;it is an enlarged, three metre-high version of Myth[Sphinx]-the statue that Quinn produced last year, depicting Moss in an extreme yoga position, with her ankles and arms contorted around her ears.

Like the original, the new version is made out of white-painted bronze.

According to Alex Platon,a specialist in modern art at Sotheby's auction house,''Myth[Sphinx] is a blow-away piece:she has a completely mesmerising, Medusa-like effect.It is a piece that constantly plays tricks on the observer.Though the work is over three metres high,its size seems to change according to the position from which it is seen.At the same time, it is a real testament to the compelling, tantalising, power of beauty.''

For this post I decided to show it in close-up;maybe a shot of the whole piece next time[?]

Thanks for looking.
