Robert George

There’s a saying, “Clay is the life, plaster is the death, bronze is the resurrection”*. *This saying has been handed down by sculptors for generations and refers to the principal stages involved in making a sculpture. Possibly Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux “In everything there are three sides, the black, the white, and the truth.” “I painted the black to this sculpture with no intension. Sometimes it feels like vandalism. I still try to understand it. Maybe adding it black allowed me to make it personal… something about a moment in my life. Sculpture constantly transforms in its context. Perhaps the addition of the black gave it the visual energy necessary to the third side to bring it to life, … the truth.”
