About Untitled No 50 1/8

This dynamic sculpture by Richard Tosczak captures a nude female in an athletic pose—body tucked, head to one side as if rolling on the ground. Cast in bronze, the piece is highly textured. Tosczak is known for his beautiful, expressive figurative work. This is 1 in an edition of 8.

“The figurative works of the last few years are overtly anonymous and convey an intense introspection. Even those figures, inspired by dynamic activities such as dance and contact improvisation, give the impression they are turning inward into themselves.” Richard Tosczak

Born in Belgium, Richard Tosczak studied philosophy and sculpture at the University of Alberta. At that time, Tosczak began working in steel and was influenced by a number of his professors who appreciated the work of a British abstract sculptor, Sir Anthony Caro considered one of the greatest sculptors of his generation. Further studies were pursued in France with another internationally acclaimed classic sculptor, Martine Vaugel. Tosczak has exhibited in Canada, Brazil and in Europe. His work is held in private, public and corporate collections in Canada.
