Suspending Gravity

H 24cm (9.5 in)
Wire, clay, acrylic, pigment powder

 

When a foal leaps into the air, for a few moments, they are able to defy nature.

This piece was a further extension of the Foals Rush In series. I am still trying to work through the ideas that that collection started and taking it a step further. With this piece I really strove to make the wire armature very gestural; almost "sketching" with the wire in 3D. 

Solid walnut base with a hand-rubbed tung oil finish.

 

Private Collection
