2009, cast Parian, 37”h 29”w 1.5”d, Edition of: 26 Sculptures (A-Z), 5 Artist Proofs and 4 collaborator’s Proofs.
This sculpture is the very first editioned piece created by Mark T Smith and his first sculpture. The process to create this artwork started with a maquette at 100% of the scale of this final editioned piece. This maquette was cast in a foundry and that mold begot the result you see here in this installation. The bull is an icon that the artist works with often, as a vessel from his thoughts on the masculine. The piece is cast in crushed marble.
