Goumelis Girl (Girl in love with herself)
John W. Rhoden
Goumelis Girl is an abstract sculpture of a female nude. While Rhoden was in Indonesia on a Rockefeller Foundation fellowship, he completed this figurative sculpture from teakwood, emphasizing the curve of the figure from its limbs, to its face and hair: its head turned to rest its left cheek upon its shoulder with hair in a chignon. Goumelis Girl was exhibited in "John Rhoden: Sculpture" at GALLERY 62, National Urban League, New York, November 8, 1982 - December 10, 1982.
