Sculpture: Metal on Aluminium.
The color on this piece puts it into a different space than most of my sculpture. It makes my eye attracted to it to try to understand what it is. For one thing it makes it a much more powerful landmark which is important in it self. The second question is what is it? Is it a machine or is it Art or is it a sign? I had to call it something so that is where the name comes from.
This maquette is available for enlargement as are all the others in my maquette library. Please talk to me about enlargement as well as the additional fee.
If you have an interest in my sculpture there is a lot of it on you tube that shows it in the round with some conversation to explain things. Search “You Tube Richard Arfsten sculpture” also Pinterest “Richard Arfsten sculpture”.
I also have a lot more sculpture that I am trying to find the time to put here on Saatchi. Google Richard Arfsten sculpture and hit images on the top of the opening page.
The major value in these pieces is the maquette aspect. The maquette is a three-dimensional model or blueprint that works to show that the design is accurate and can be built larger. A metal fabricator measures off of it to make the patterns to build from, just like a talor uses your measurements to make your clothes. When presenting ideas to a client for consideration most sculptors submit a concept drawing on a piece of paper. A maquette is the actual sculpture in miniature. When you lift it up to view at eye level it will depict the sculpture exactly as it will be seen in real life as if you were walking up to it.
