Erin Sullivan, Bronze Serpent

Price Upon Request
  • Description
    Cast in one bronze piece, the elegant Bronze Serpent is at once functional side table and stool, as well as a free standing sculptural object. Caught in a perennially swirling movement, Bronze Serpent is a visual expression of bodily awareness, that simultaneously ignites the viewer’s movement who can experience it differently from every angle. Using time and memory as constant themes within Sullivan’s repertoire, bronze surfaces as the artist’s material of interest; its ability to survive several millennia brought new poetic potency to her process. With Bronze Serpent, Sullivan extends this idea, casting from the skin of an undomesticated life form, creating an aesthetic equilibrium between life and death, nature and artifice, art and design.

    Through a labor intensive process, 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, devested, sandblasted, welded, chased, re-detailed, polished and patinated.

    As Sullivan works on a commission basis, custom dimensionality and finishes may be accommodated for a bespoke piece based upon Bronze Serpent.
