About the Work

Bronze statuette of a nude male moving forward from a plinth, arms truncated and headless in the tradition of fragmented classical sculpture. The fragmented human form in modern sculpture such as that by Rodin, is highly expressive and dynamic. In this piece by Tosczak, the immediacy of the original clay figure that was based on a single drawing adds to this dynamism. Tosczak is a Belgian-born, Edmonton-based figurative sculptor. He studied philosophy and modernist sculpture, working in steel, at the University of Alberta where a number of the professors had a strong affiliation with Sir Anthony Caro and Clement Greenberg. Richard pursued further artistic training in the Loire Valley with Martine Vaugel, first director of figurative sculpture at the New York Academy of Art. Tosczak’s figurative sculptures are in public collections in Alberta, Canada and Barcelona, Spain. He has exhibited in Canada, Brazil, Spain and France and was the only Canadian selected for the 2013 Figurativa exhibition in Barcelona.
