Bronze sculpture details
The “joy of life”, therefore, is a highly abstract term. In Simon’s work, it is shown in an object that oscillates between the shape of a proud bird stretching up its neck and that of a flame of fire – a typical study of the artist, thus revealing these or other associations to the viewer.
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand. Limited to 49 numbered and signed copies.
Robert Simon could have been a musician. Before he became a sculptor, he studied music, but decided to perfect his sculpting talents which were clearly visible in his youth. In Austria - at the sculpture school Geisler-Moroder, he has been sharing his knowledge and experience as a lecturer with the next generation. At the same time, he completed an apprenticeship as a wood and stone sculptor.
