Man No. 2


Wood, cast aluminum

This sculpture is part of my Man Series sculptures, which includes three sculptures; Man No. 1, Man No. 2 and Man No. 3. This series got started when I got a commission to carve wooden portrait. Man No. 1 sculpture is an unpretentious wooden portrait of a man. When I was doing this commission I got an idea to do a couple of other versions. Also in these sculptures, I also used wood, but I also wanted to combine Aluminum Casting techniques to them.

Man No. 3 is also a combination between melted Aluminum and wood. In here it is more about Aluminum that wood. In this piece, there is not so much left of wood because the wood was in so tiny pieces that the hot Aluminum turned practically all wood into charcoal.
