Bronze sculpture details
Most old couples cannot say what the secret of their long-lasting love is. If you meet one, however, you notice it: a kind of inviolability, a naturalness in their dealings with each other that has proved itself over and over again for a whole lifetime.
These things are hard to capture in words – Roucka’s sculpture therefore gets to the heart of it without words. Her old couple shows a man and a woman as two individual figures which have long grown into an inseparable couple.
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
Eva Roucka was born in Pilsen. Her first artistic training was at the Prague School of Graphic Arts and the ceramic school in the same city in the then Czechoslovakia from 1969 to 1979. In 1982, she emigrated to France and continued her studies at the Paris art college.
