Alberto Giacometti – Head SculpturesPosted: May 28, 2015
The rough, eroded and heavily worked surfaces of Giacometti’s work bare a strong resemblance to my own timed sculptures. Though the material used in Giacometti’s work is actually bronze, it’s raw structural form holds an organic quality that is usually only achievable in clay. Whilst I can’t hope to convert any of my own sculptures into bronze with the time remaining, perhaps this was the outcome I wanted to achieve.
The bronze has the dense colour that I wanted in my own portraits, in addition to being dense in its weight.
