Art Description

Sculpture: Clay, Steel, Metal, Paint on Steel, Other, Wood.

“Fallen” = past participle, compound form of the verb "fell".

As in: sunk in reputation, ruined, lost status, destroyed, dead, killed in battle, in instances of from-to, fallen in love, fallen in lust, or in moving from a high place to a lower place.

This sculpture is representative of that which is not part of the natural world. This art thus represents anti-reality in the extreme. It is the artist's attempt to describe a concept and an idea through simplicity of shape, form and color.

The pure nature of the form itself effectively cleaves normal human emotion. And yet some sort of actionable emotion is still present in the artwork. As such, the artist feels the artwork cannot be ignored nor simply left unto itself by the viewer. The form itself is believed a compelling one, demanding that it be viewed from multiple angles.

Being sculpture, the work presents more as a sensory experience which may be most fully enjoyed through tactile sensations. Void or empty space within the work is, to the artist, as important to the overall idea and final concept presented as are the visible, wholly touchable form.

Thus the sculpture “Fallen” is termed as non-objective art; a type of abstract art which is usually, but not always, geometric and which aims to convey a sense of simplicity, form, color and purity. Also known as concrete art, non-objective art is art created through any number of media which is devoid of any physical references to the the natural world.

Non-objective art creates novel abstract art from elements that in and of themselves may mean nothing. Very much open to interpretation, there remains, nevertheless, a clearness of and a directness of mind.

This truly unique, wholly original work is made of steel bars and steel rods, wood, wire mesh, and heavy Apoxie sculpt. The final work has been painted in multiple coats of parchment acrylic paint and then finished with a matte acrylic coating. It measures approximately 6 3/4 by 6 by 4 inches. It should be noted that no prints or copies in any format will be offered for sale.

This unusual abstract artwork is signed and dated by the artist on the bottom of the piece as illustrated in one of the accompanying photos. A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany the sold work.

"Fallen" is priced at $890, but you may also of course feel free to make your best offer to the artist.
