Colossus, that contemplates

Egor Zigura , from Aftertoday

2015


Description

This work is for those who appreciate classical sculpture with its flexible style and images, because "Colossus, that contemplates" leans toward the classic understanding of a sculptural image. This work is the interpretation of ancient images through classical language where the shape, staying within an academic understanding, has been partially finished with cuts to give us a take on a new reading of modern times. This contemporary Colossus, like the prototype of the God of the Sun Helios, brings to the viewer the idea of eternity and majestically contemplates the continual movement of human life. This idea along with the activity of the internal space of the sculpture is concentrated in Colossus’ look. His eyes create space, so it is this space which is dominant in the perception of the idea of this piece of art.  First artwork was created in 2012.
