Artist
Yenny Cocq Santa Fe, New Mexico

Yenny Cocq is a figurative sculptor who works in bronze. She begins each piece by working in oil clay so she can create the form of the figure. She continues by creating a mold to produce wax versions of the sculpture, which she can alter further to develop the emotion of her figures. The final step is to have the artwork cast in bronze at a foundry. Yenny’s figures create modular families–adults, children, and pets may be mixed and matched to accurately reflect loving familial relationships.

    Artist Statement

    Working in figurative sculpture, I am challenged by one of nature's most complex and beautiful forms the human body. I have refined the human figure to basic and almost geometric forms. I love to use the human form to portray an emotional idea or story. Giving life to my subjects by capturing their innermost emotions, I express my own romantic longings. My romantic couples embody their unique body language and in their unison they display an emergent emotional expression. With simple lines and planes I work to capture the essence of these gestures.
    The couples are separate individuals but bound in nonverbal communication. I am intrigued by the minute nuances in shift of posture or angle of the head to convey a different expression.

    In addition to creating something visually pleasing, it is my hope that viewers merge their experiences, perceptions and passions reflected in my sculpture with their own. It is my wish to create and provoke something unique for each viewer. Some may be prompted to playing dolls with the individual figures to change their intended communication and make their expression their own thus changing the story by making them a part of their own relationship.

    I have been a professional artist since 1999. My acrylic paintings are exhibited in Denmark, Germany and Santa Fe.
    I am a master printmaker, taught printmaking especially lithography in Copenhagen Denmark.
    Also I have had numerous exhibitions of my work in sculpture and acrylic painting in Denmark from 2004 -present. My work is in corporate and private collections.

    We're so enjoying this miniature piece. According to our moods, we move the figures apart, together, or even turning one's back to the other.
