‘Footloose’ by Sue Brelade

Footloose‘ by Sue Brelade (SOLD)

“Shoes and boots are so very authoritarian. So very masculine. So very controlling, particularly of women – with dress codes requiring high-heels making the news. Going barefoot speaks about freedom. In this sculpture I have tried to capture that freedom from restraint, that small rebellion of going barefoot in a society where shoes and boots are ubiquitous. Barefoot we can be both footloose and fancy-free!”

Bisque fired clay, hand textured and painted.
