ENDANGERED: Fine Art & Photography Contest 2018 Winner
First Prize Winner: Fine Art - Congratulations to Alan Hamwi for Unlikely Friends
Art is the concept, sculpture is the language and representational reference is the syntax. With bronze, stone and wood, I hope to inspire an experience as familiar as a fable and as personal as a relationship; a story without beginning or end; of abstract qualities and intangible principles celebrating the expressions of our humanity. Lost wax bronze casting is an ancient method of creation. The process begins with the mechanicals of twisting armatures and the compulsive forming of clay. Then, the piece is subjected to a series of mold-making procedures until finally the bronze is poured. The techniques of chasing metal and patination complete the visualization. Abstracts, animals or figurative works, bronze casting is at the heart of my existence as an artist.
