Description: Bronze sculpture in an edition of 12.
Condition Report: Excellent Condition
Notes: Gustavo Torres gives his bronze sculptures, which resemble those of antiquity, the breath of life by capturing gestures such as the sway of a woman's hips, a figures glance or a dog's upturned ear. The rough finish on his sculpture invites touch and contemplation. "My goal is to capture the spirit of the form," he says. "You do this by using the least amount of material possible. This is the most difficultfinding the essence. The rough texture allows the viewer to feel the sculpture and get a sense of its forms." According to Torres, the pointed, fused legs on his human figures "combine to one point in life."
