'Hawthorne Tree II'

Isaac Witkin

1990 - metal: bronze

Font Size: AAA

Isaac Witkin is principally known for his bold and formal constructivist steel pieces from the 1960s and later for his soft-edged, organic bronze pieces, such as 'Hawthorn Tree II, generated from Witkin’s improvised explorations of experimental foundry techniques in which molten bronze is directly poured onto a bed of sand. As the artist has stated, “Rather than beginning with a drawing, my ideas are always conceived three-dimensionally. My language is generated from the free flow of metal drawn in molten states onto beds of sand.”
