Steel Walking Man

Walking Man

Private collection

Life scale 2007

 

This is the first in a series of life scale human pieces paying homage to August Rodin’s figurative bronzes, most notably his “Walking Man”.   Using a technique that allows the freedom to add and subtract allows for the creation of a figurative piece with correct anatomical proportions, composed of abstract elements.  This piece has a realistic dimensional representation using a random yet subtly organized visual vocabulary. The working process is like a bird building a nest, intuitively adding each successive bit.
