Figurative Sculpture

 

The original inspiration for these sculptures was based around classic art nude photography by artists like Ruth Bernhard. In the same way that an artist or photographer might select the pose, viewpoint, lighting and composition while carefully balancing the aesthetic values of the process, Andrew has composed figurative abstractions that capture the subtle beauty of the human form in carefully selected life poses.

Recognising that future technology will allow artists increasingly more detailed an accurate levels of inspiration and interpretation, Andrew has embraced the limitations of the particular processes he has used, allowing the sculptures to retain hints of their time and place in the history of sculpture and the development of digital technology.

The resulting sculptures not only accept the current limitations of technology, they celebrate the beauty of the impermanent or incomplete thought the eye and mind of a craftsman in much the same way as the Japanese aesthetic Wabi Sabi.
