    Brooklyn-based sculptor Patricia Cronin uses a classical style to explore contemporary feminist themes. Aphrodite Reimagined is a maquette of a monumental sculpture of the same title in the collection of the Tampa Museum of Art. Inspired by a fragment of marble Roman figure from the museum’s collection from the 1st century AD, Cronin re-created the figure in cold cast marble and reconstituted the figure’s missing features in a pale aquamarine resin. The result is a sculpture that appears simultaneously ancient and contemporary, fragmented and whole.
