This charming bronze statuette of a walking elephant is rendered in a lively texture with an elegant sepia patina. Alberta-based sculptor Richard Tosczak begins his pieces with rapid pen and ink studies that evolve into dynamic three dimensional figurative works cast in bronze. This piece is number 2 in an edition of 8. Tosczak studied philosophy and sculpture, working in steel, at the University of Alberta where a number of professors had an affinity for the work of Sir Anthony Caro. Tosczak pursued further art training in the Loire Valley, France, with Martine Vaugel. Tosczak has exhibited in Canada, Brazil, Spain and France and was the only Canadian selected for the 2013 Figurativa exhibition in Barcelona. His work is in corporate, private and public collections including the University of Alberta Collections, the City of Edmonton, the Alberta Foundation for the Arts and the University of Calgary.
