This piece also harkens back to sculptures of the classical period. The subject of an outstretched hand is a classical image (e.g. Sistine Chapel ceiling) and marble, white marble, is the medium of classical sculpture.
Emerge is designed to show the progression of a sculpture as it develops from a block of marble. Every four inches, an increasing level of detail is revealed such that it appears as if the sculpture is emerging from the stone. The challenges in this piece were to capture the tension that can be expressed in a life-like hand and the detail of my fingerprint in the index finger.
