Princess Cook, Texas Sculpture Group
From San Antonio, Texas
In the body of work that I call my “Venus Series” (a reference to the mythological Venus de Milo and the Earth Mother Goddess of prehistory), “Venus” is a time-traveling alter ego of sorts, through whom I explore all sorts of situations and voyage outside all natural and mental boundaries, including space, time and ordinary “reality.” She often expresses opinions on various events throughout history, the present or imagined future, and explores social and political topics, often in unorthodox and socially (to some) unacceptable, satirical and frequently humorous ways. She is frequently found at the wrong place in the wrong time. Venus also has her own history recorded from what would be our future called “Excerpts from the Cosmic Consciousness in Pre-History.”
