Sculpture: Stone on Stone.
Many of my abstract figurative works are inspired by the linear quality of abstract sculptures by Ryoichi Suzuki who I studied under as well as artist Myles Howell. Their work is abstract and I loved the line quality they use in their forms so I have taken the elements of that line quality and applied it to the abstracted figure. The figure is the most interesting subject matter in my opinion and all of my artworks reference the figure. Some of my stone sculptures are more abstracted and some are more representational but all of them are based on human figure and gesture.
This sculpture is made of beautiful black Utah limestone that has some stunning red-orange, and white marbling. The pose is that of an abstracted male torso with the arms pulling an invisible weight. I think we all have an unseen weight that we are pulling which is why it is so important to give others the benefit of the doubt and understand that everyone is struggling with their own trials.
