During the summer of 2014 a friend suggested I do a lacrosse piece and helpfully provided a great action photograph. Since we were in a four month rental in New Canaan, CT and I was without my usual materials for a traditional, three dimensional sculpture, I improvised. Thus, a bas relief was born, utilizing a piece of wallboard found in the basement and the modeling clay I always have on hand. The process was intriguing as it merged the two dimensional restrictions and perspective distortions of a painting with the raised sculpted relief. The action subject matter was exciting enough to encourage me to produce the full figure American Indian lacrosse piece, “Warrior Game”
In the Bronzart Foundry in Sarasota, where I do most of my casting, we did one copy with a traditional monotone patina and tried another with a color wash. The two pieces are shown here for comparison. As with all other bronzes, the color and finish can be selected to personal taste.
The photographs of my sculpture were done by Bonnie Greenberg of West Palm Beach.
