Young girl
coming out of the frame
a bronze by Bruce Krebs.

She is joyful, but at same time,
the sculpture of the face she is very careful so as not to hurt herself. She is a teenager with a ponytail, careful but determined.

the bronze  I hadn't made any preiminary sketchs.
  At the start I only had this gilded wooden frame.
   I had selected a rather strict frame
    for an entirely different scheme.
     To me, the young girl is coming out
      of the frame
       both in the literal and
        figurative senses of the word.
         That's to that purpose,
         I required from my founder
        a darker background.
       I didn't want that background
      to be another colour,
     of a different shade of brown
    for instance.
   I wanted the same colour,
  because the young girl doesn't come
 out of a world which is foreign to her,
she is gently stepping out of her own world.

The sculpture
She is smiling,
she is relaxed and resolute, I'm fond of this work!
