#440 In the studio: Touch

The imprint of an artist's touch cast in bronze on the surface of a sculpture has a living presence,
as fingerprints and tool marks are a source of fascination for the viewer.

Run your hands over the surface of a beautifully modeled sculpture - 
feel the form, see with your hands.

Walk around the sculpture and use your hands and eyes to feel your way in and out of the shapes.
New forms appear at every angle -  smooth, curved shapes, vigorously modeled passages, hard edges . . .
a source of endless discovery as the sculptor leads you through space, 
giving you an experience inspire by nature.
