Matthew Hood

Medium Bronze (edition of 15)

Size 15" (38cm)

Cost £8,500

Background

Modelled in Raglan in 1989.

In 1988 Luke undertook a 3 month residency at Berllanderri Sculpture Studio. During this period he modelled a bust of Katie Hood.
Her brother Matthew was modelled 1 year later.

 

" With many hours to experiment upon this bust, I found it exciting to try out many different techniques that I had been researching. Methods from Rodin’s studio, such as dipping the bust into liquid plaster to obtain a tight skin-like youthful surface, helped inform the look of this bust. Similar effects were explored in the bust of Billy Connolly."
