Foot Fetish

13Nov12

Artist Gwen Murphy has found a way to meld two of my great loves, art and shoes. The Foot Fetish series began in 2005 and she has made numerous sculptures using only shoes that are second hand/used, or found on the roadside. Some are made from clay and others from repurposed hardwood forms.

” Since I was a very young child I have looked at shoes and found them looking back at me, each pair with its particular personality and facial expression. Mouths yawning open, they sometimes look sleepy, grouchy, or fierce.”

~~ Gwen Murphy
