Re: Awesome Sculpture du Jour

Boy Jockey of Artemision
Dates from around 150-146 BC
life size

This can be found in the National Archaeological Museum of Athens. I like it so much I think I am going to see it this summer.

Discovered 1926 by two fishermen in Cape Artemision . This horse and its child rider was found in fragments in an ancient shipwreck. One of the few representations of Greek horse race monuments probably some dedication to the gods by a wealthy person for a horse race victory.

Re: Awesome Sculpture du Jour

http://www.artinamericamagazine.com/media/video/11340DiSuvero, bringing it to NYC. I cant wait to see this Governor's Isle show. Especially because I won't be dragging any of MY work there this year (its such a pain-in-the-ass to install there).

Re: Awesome Sculpture du Jour

For some reason the St. Gaudens sculpture posted by jOe did not display for me previously, otherwise I would have chimed in with "right on!".

I actually called up this thread to post a link to a catalog of works by Prince Paul Troubetskoi. On another forum I critiqued a friend's sculpture and mentioned that artist, but was unaware of this link until she posted the result of her researching his work it in her reply.

Re: Awesome Sculpture du Jour

Totally taken by Ralph Brown's sculptures, especially his "Savages" and "Meat Porters" series. Fascinating to watch -through his works- how he arrived from realism to abstraction. He even combines realism with abstraction in the same piece with amazing effectiveness.

A "savage" pagan seated queen placed in a cathedral? Priceless...

Thanks for the intro to Brown' s work. He has a superb eye for a particular kind of beauty, although it is an established and very safe tradition he works in.

What do you mean by "safe tradition"?

Re: Awesome Sculpture du Jour

A well established tradition, really. The artist here offers a body of stunning personal work, but he is tilling a well worked field. No criticism - wish I had his aesthetic sense. There is a kind of beauty here that comes from a complex understanding of visual things and their surfaces. There is a love of the stone and an easy love of carving, as, for instance, in the play of textures, something that only comes with a lifetime of experimentation and the accumulation of a mental library of technical and visual options.

Re: Awesome Sculpture du Jour

I like your assessment, Sam, and I have a special appreciation for artists that take extraordinary leaps of a very personal aesthetic that seems to tear apart the very frame of the well established tradition from within.

Re: Awesome Sculpture du Jour

Currently I am in love with John Maltby's ceramic sculptures, their unassuming simplicity, reduced-to-essence-form. Especially this one:

Re: Awesome Sculpture du Jour

Maltby's work - just so sculptural and idiosyncratic. A man's character made in stone.

I think part of the attraction of this work is the return to a naive form of representation and to symbolic forms (bird-man?). This sculpture references simpler iconic and 'primitive' art, and perhaps a time when we were all agreed what are was. This is art with a social function, that reaches out to its viewers. There's no puzzle here, as with much of contemporary art.
