Artist Statement: A large number of my pieces are dressed, or covered in some way. I am not interested in producing nudes.
I like to wrap my figures, so the idea of wrapping a figure in paper became a logical step. At some point I produced a drawing of Mickey the cartoon character gift wrapped. Why I came up with the drawing, I cant answer, I draw lots of ideas in my sketch book, many never see the light of day.
Toy Boy grabbed my attention. There is a long history of sculptures draped to give the illusion of a figure underneath. It was only when I came up with the name, did I realize I had to build it.
Medium: Bronze Sculpture
Dimensions: 120 X 37 X 24 cms
CHG Director's Statement: Steve Glassborow sculptures immediately command the viewers attention with striking imagery, forms and design. His sculptures often relate to an art deco form which has morphed into themes influenced by fashion, robotic figures and animals in recent years.
Steve has developed the patination of the sculpture to an art form in itself, which all happened by accident!
Sophistication is a word that comes to mind when describing his sculpture. Understatement alluring, fascinating and highly imaginative all are appropriate as well, which describes his sculpture. We often see a whimsical side within the artists designs.
Having followed his artwork for nearly two decades I have seen a massive transition in Steve Glassborow's design, never willing not to push the barriers of development.
I recommend this professional and active sculptor who possesses a vision and design that is of a world standard. We are fortunate to represent an artist of such note!
Steve is available for commission work via the gallery, please enquiry if this could be a thought whether it be for private courtyards, interiors or commercial application.
