Surfing and surfers became a part of pop culture in the late fifties
and early sixties. After Hawaii joined the union and the new awareness
of this popular pastime, California developed an enormous surf culture.Many surfers have an intimate relationship with nature and a
special appreciation for the wave. All of the natural world is
made of atoms, which are made of particles and all particles
are made up of waves So all of infinity is really just a sea of wave forms.This sculpture "Catch The Wave" captures the mid century surfer ethos
perfectly and it is hard to imagine the artist not being aware
and a part of the surf culture of this period.This powerful and imposing abstract sculpture is hard to ignore.
The artist's use of both concept & material
are constantly appealing to the eye.
The work has both visual weight and biomorphic qualities
which create a great feast of contrasts!The wood is wonderful and has a knot that perfectly
adds to the wave motion of the grain!In the second half of the twentieth century, a great appreciation of sculpture
and modern art manifested in the upper echelons of society. It was a wonderful
time to be alive and be a part of this rediscovering of art
and pushing past convention. Artists and their patrons found new freedom
in abstract forms - which reflected the journey of the mind.
In excellent vintage condition.
A wonderful addition to your NY Penthouse,
