I made this work in response to a French statue titled Royal Benefactress, created by an unknown sculptor in the 14th century.The statue, which I first saw in Berlin, has long fascinated me. For Homage...,I considered this statue of the past in the context of the present; I thought about what I would do, were I the artist having lived on for 600 years. I was also interested in representing the original sculpture on my own terms,in my own expressive language.
