Sculpting the human figure in bronze is steeped in tradition… But, I am drawn to the example of the French sculptor August Rodin who over a hundred years ago also drew quick one minute sketches of his life models in his studio. What was he looking at? It may have begun with the formal aspects of drawing, gesture, observation of line shape form perspective etc..
But what happens when you draw another human moving? Interpreting movement leaves little room for what is unimportant or irrelevant. For me this sense of urgency has become liberating.
