At once both elegant and classic, this superb sculpture is the work of Jeremy Guy. The graceful form of a female figure emerges from the black granite. Guy has long been influenced by the renowned British sculptors Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. The velvety smooth finish of this piece reveals a black/brown patina with flecks of bronze on the edges.
This is one of a series, engraved with the artist's signature, date, edition and foundry. The word solstice comes from the latin ‘sol’--sun and ‘sistere’ which means to stand still—a reference perhaps to the seasonal movement of the sun’s daily path.
“My work conveys a sense of balance and peace as I strive to seek a seemingly impossible equilibrium between the simple elegance and dynamic complexity of the world in which we live." Jeremy Guy
He was born and raised in England where he completed a BA in Product Design from Leeds Metropolitan University. Since graduation in 2001 he has been a full-time sculptor.
