About The Artwork

This sculpture is an abstract representation of an imaginary meeting with a distant relative, who suddenly appears out of nowhere, and is not quite what you expected. Its is made in aluminium and the main body of the sculpture has a emulsion paint textured finish, and this contrasts with high gloss details in gloss auto-lacquer. The sculpture is non corrosive, and is mounted on a black steel base. The whole sculpture sits on top of a small black steel plinth, with hardware to secure it to a turf, (steel pegs) stone /brick/concrete (eyelets which swing out ,for bolting it down) support base. This will secure it against wind if the sculpture is to be placed outside. Total height of the sculpture on the base is is 197 cm The sculpture is made in an edition , this being 1/3.

Paul Stein was born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1956 , and lives and works out of his studio in Cape Town. He works in the medium of metal and mixed media sculpture, and his works are in collections both in South Africa and abroad. I work primarily within the direct metal approach to sculpture, as opposed to the cast metal method. My raw materials are sheets of steel or aluminium which I shape towards the desired end. I am drawn towards simplicity in form and the idea of stating an idea with minimum fuss. I find inspiration in many things, but my prime area of interest at the moment is using the medium of sculpture to express human intent. I am also interested in the idea of fragmentation, of form, movement and implied movement in sculpture. How do you alter the static nature of sculpture, and make it come alive?
