'Summertime Lady'

David Hostetler

1999 - metal: bronze

Font Size: AAA

The brilliant red and rich black 'Summertime Lady', stands in the reflecting pool near Rat's Restaurant. The sleek, willowy figure in her clinging scarlet gown is abstracted to highlight the essence of feminine allure and sophistication. Hostetler's oeuvre is devoted to the subject of women, honoring the female form and paying tribute to her mythological role as earth goddess. He has created works exclusively within the boundaries of this theme for over fifty years. In addition to his preference for realizing sculptures in carved exotic woods or cast bronze, this artist has created many monoprints, some of them studies for subsequent three-dimensional pieces.
