About Resistance

After being on display in Englewood City Center since 2000, this sculpture is now on view at Marjorie Park. Resistance is a pensive woman lost in introspection. Appearing naked to the world, she protects herself against all outside forces. Desiring to evoke an emotional response from the viewer, she creates intimate, tactile work.
Resistance is a tribute to the elegant beauty and dignity of the human form. Temple’s style transcends objective realism, and directly expresses her artistic instinct. Working quickly, and directed by intuition, she captures the shape of the subject without striving for photographic likeness.

Through clearer,
More dimensional perceptions
Through pin-prick sensuality
Feeling the inside skin of love
Not the outer layer protection
-Leslie A. Temple
