LOS ANGELES, Calif., May 23, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — A nude pregnant sculpture of Kim Kardashian with her belly fully accessible for gallery-goers to rub for ‘good luck’ is set for L.A. exhibit. The nude statue joins the celebrity baby sculptures created recently by artist Daniel Edwards; celebrating the beauty of celebrity pregnancy. The recent work, part of the artist’s “Celebrity Baby Boomer” series that began with the 2006 controversial sculpture “Monument to Pro-Life,” which depicted a nude Britney Spears giving birth on a bearskin rug, will be displayed at LAB ART Gallery in Los Angeles, announces Cory Allen Contemporary Art (CACA).
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.”
An auction hosted by Google headquarters recently featured limited edition prints of the Baby Kimye sculpture printed by L.A. based Intellectual Property Prints for Venice Art Walk’s annual benefit to provide health care to families in need.
“L.A. Fertility” will debut at LAB ART Gallery, on June 5, 2013 at 11 a.m., located at 217 S. La Brea Avenue in Los Angeles, CA. For more info, contact Cory Allen at 323-393-3115 or http://www.cacanet.com/ .
