'General Bronze'

Marisol Escobar

1997 - metal: bronze

Font Size: AAA

'General Plywood' served as the model for 'General Bronze', which was cast and fabricated at the Johnson Atelier Technical Institute of Sculpture in Mercerville, NJ. The artist has depicted a haughty, military leader whose image is based upon General Juan Gomez, a Venezuelan dictator. His commanding presence on horseback resembles many other public homages to political figures placed in town squares. However, Marisol has referred to this sculpture as an "anti-monument." Marisol's works engage the viewer through her witty commentary, though after deeper consideration, an underlying serious tone becomes evident. This perceptive complexity has earned Marisol many one-person shows since her first in New York City in 1958. Her works are in numerous prestigious museum and private collections throughout the world.
