Behold: Recent 27 Club member Amy Winehouse, the bare-boobed ghost-muse behind New York sculptor Daniel Edwards’ latest sculpture for his Cory Allen Contemporary Art gallery exhibit. Her bronze bust scrubbed of tattoos, the blue-eyed soul chanteuse has lillies and a little songbird perching in her trademark beehive and looks quite lifelike, unless you look at the withering skin sinking in over her jutting ribcage and pre-implant breasts. Unlike Edwards’ classic, scathing Justin Bieber the Sylvester Cat dick with Tweety Bird balls sculpture, this one is kind of sweet.
“I thought of her as a beautifully delicate fairytale princess, waiting to be rescued from fame and addiction, but her prince never came,” Edwards explains.
“I had always expected to sculpt her portrait, but I was waiting for her to put some of her troubles behind her. She had made me pay attention to contemporary music again.”
“The portrait of Amy is dedicated to those struggling with addiction and eating disorders. Nobody should have to go through what Amy went through.”
