About Ceres A.P./8

This expressive, intimate sculpture of a female is by Canadian artist Richard Tosczak.
As if deep in thought, the nude figure stands with her arms wrapped around herself. Tosczak is known for his beautiful figurative work that is created from gestural pen and ink drawings. This approach allows the artist to capture the emotion and spontaneity of a moment in time. Number 1 in an edition of 8.

“I work from the single distilled image that the drawing is and try to remain true to just that. Beyond that it’s all abstract…or what I like to call a formalist ethic.” 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.
