Erin Sullivan, Fire and Water Single, LED and Bronze Wall Sculpture, USA, 2016

Price Upon Request
  • Description
    Fire/Water, is cast from a single triangular fragment of burnt old wood, preserving the transformative character of the source material. The bronze relief radiates a warm glow from embedded LED’s, while a curtain of horsehair dramatically descends from the base of the bronze. Sullivan’s continuing repertoire offers a visual, elegant equilibrium between artifice and nature.

    New York based contemporary sculptor Erin Sullivan, implements the highest quality casting techniques to create exquisite, realistic bronze interpretations of her organic subject matter. After sculpting models using wax reproductions made from a natural objects, Sullivan creates molds of the final model from which a wax positive is produced. Once this wax is “chased” or reworked with great attention, “gates” or wax rods are attached to create channels through which the molten bronze will travel. The whole structure is then dipped, poured, de-vested, sandblasted, welded, chased, re-detailed, polished and patinated.

    As Sullivan works on a commission basis, custom dimensionality as well as finishes may be accommodated for a bespoke piece.
