Launch: New Sculptures by Marcus Harvey

October 18, 2012 by Georgia

Press release: London based Other Criteria is establishing an international following for its eclectic array of artist editions. Other Criteria welcomes Marcus Harvey as the next artist to produce a series of sculptural works exclusively created for the gallery based on New Bond Street from 25 October 2012.

The sculptures are portraits of characters inspired by an array of British history-mythology, flavoured by satirists from George Cruikshank to contemporary cartoonists (do we have a contemp example?).

The work consists of glazed stoneware and unique direct wax cast bronze sculptures. The direct wax cast process involves modelling wax in the way Harvey typically squeezes, winds and presses clay for his ceramic sculpture, the wax is then directly cast in bronze bypassing the mould-making procedure, with the hope of preserving the spontaneity of the clay work.
