Hamish’s bronze nudes are a departure from the wildlife sculpture for which he is best known. However, whether sculpting the animal or human figure, he brings to all his work the same anatomical accuracy, attention to detail, and exploration of his subject’s spirit.

Part of a long tradition in western art, Hamish has chosen to sculpt naked women in positions which accentuate the musculature and physiology of the human body. All Hamish’s bronze nudes are fine pieces of figurative art and skilfully portray the the beauty of the female form.

“It is refreshing to sculpt from a living model in the studio. I can decide both what stance they should take and rotate to any angle to sculpt from – it is more immediate than piecing together research collected in the field.” (HM)

Nude Female Torso is a detailed bronze sculpture of a woman’s trunk, available in a limited edition of 12.

Nude Female Torso was sculpted at the same time as Nude Female Stretching and Nude Female Poised. However, I was not happy with the outcome at the time, so reworked it at a later date. This has happened to me occasionally over the years. I wrap the original up in plastic so it doesn’t dry up and, leaving it for a while, I can then come back to look at it and often re-work the sculpture.
