Bronze sculpture details
In search of a rich formation of shapes and interesting sequences of motion, I found my theme in the portrayal of animal figures. The body of the horse provides me with creative scope in which a whole diversity of movements can be found. The sculpture has expressive experiences of movement. The shape was achieved by exaggerating the natural proportions and shape dimensions. It was important to me not only to find an exciting and dynamic motif but also to achieve an abstract view through the unusual physical position and circulatory structural connection so that here there remains no body or dimensions but only movement.
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
