Erin Sullivan, Fauna Series, Serpent Stool, USA, 2015
Cast in one bronze piece, the elegant Serpent Stool is at once a functional object and a free-standing sculpture. Frozen in an upward swirl, Serpent Stool is a visual expression of movement. The work expresses ideas of time and memory, constant themes in Sullivan’s repertoire. In Serpent Stool, Sullivan immortalizes the ephemeral skin of a serpent in bronze, a durable material capable of surviving many several millennia. The artist crafts an aesthetic equilibrium between life and death, nature and artifact, and art and design.
New York based contemporary sculptor Erin Sullivan employs the labor-intensive lost-wax process to create exquisite, realistic bronze interpretations of her organic subject matter. As Sullivan works on a commission basis, custom dimensionality and finishes may be accommodated.
