This dynamic bronze statuette of a rearing horse is rendered in an expressive texture with an elegant green patina. Sculptor Richard Tosczak begins many of his sculptures with rapid pen and ink studies that evolve into three dimensional figurative work cast in bronze. This work is number 1 in an edition of 12. 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.
