'Bucci'

Peter Voulkos

2001 - metal: bronze

Font Size: AAA

Voulkos’ 'Missoula' and 'Bucci' are bronze castings of monumental clay stacks. Each piece is constructed around a cylindrical core that has been distorted, reduced, and subsequently rebuilt using ceramic fragments, slabs, bricks, and chunks of various shapes, textures, and sizes. In Missoula, the negative space of the rectangular windows balances the dense, fitted bricks of the base and lends a distinct architectural sensibility to the piece. The rounded cap and smooth neck of Bucci invite figurative references. In each work, the muscular and weighted lines of seams join blemished satin, pock-marked, and wounded surfaces to produce a sculptural record of its individual construction, destruction, and reformation.
