Man Walking On Water
I am a great admirer of Jean Cocteau and met with him (so in a dream) when I was 20 years of age where he confronted me with the importance of “the line”?. At the same time when I (then a ballet dancer at the Deutsche Opera Berlin) was told by a family member of Stefan Zweig (the writer) to pursue the meaning of “to say” (say it outside the box – say it differently – say it with passion).
Returning to the square and circle is a series of bronze sculptures which demonstrate the result. Both the importance of “the line” and what “to say” expressing a short story using the most basics of shape: 3D squares and circles. Detail such as facial expression, hands, feet and color play little or no role as the overall shape “speaks”.
“Man walking on water” is at times used as an example of an impossible task. Or, is it a preamble for an dramatic success? The maquette is made of wood to be bronze cast.
