In Puckey's series of recent marble sculptures, the individual female figures, young and completely or partially nude, are invariably and disquietingly accompanied by the presence of modern weaponry. Sometimes their derivation from classical models is rather evident, and his meticulous rendering of the firearms and blades dressing the figures is gorgeously tied together with his anatomical detail in their sometimes agressive poses.
