Original wall sculpture supplied framed by popular artist Dan Lane.
Inspired by the work of Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Michelangelo and Antonia Canova, this sculpture reimagines a classic style in a thoroughly modern setting.
Using the exciting new medium of marble, Dan intertwined the exploration of how we treat our bodies with a desire to create pieces which look like they could be hundreds of years old.
He adds: “The copper finish is one I’ve also developed over time. It’s a technique which mixes real, hand-applied copper leaf with paint-aging methods. The aging method can be taken to the extreme by using chemicals to produce a natural verdigris (a bluish-green patina). I love the warm tones of the copper, and it really helps the engraved or sculpted tattoos to stand out from the sculpture.”
