Presenting an exquisite figural sculpture masterfully hand crafted and signed by the world renowned Italian / Australian artist, Walter Auer in 2000 as a part of his Trance-sition series. Examples of this distinguished artists' work rarely come onto the market and we take exceptional pleasure in offering this magnificent gallery quality piece for your consideration. The masterful skill of the artist is evident as soon as you gaze upon this exquisite example. This perfectly proportioned freestanding sculptural piece is a wonderfully contemporary interpretation of the human form. The clay has been expertly hand sculpted to create a rugged form with just enough detail to elude to the human figure.
Despite the ruggedness of texture the form has an appealing ethereal lightness which while grounded upon a solid base appears to float. This masterfully crafted piece is wonderfully tactile. It is as if one can feel the artists' hands that formed it to life.
The form is perfectly balanced with a fabulous sense of movement and a different view appreciated from every angle. A wonderfully sophisticated conceptual sculptural piece of contemporary Australian ceramic art. This magnificent gallery quality piece is presented in excellent condition with no breaks, losses or repairs.
This piece has been very well cared for and presents spectacularly. This impressive piece stands 255mms tall and measures 80mms x 90mms wide at the base. This piece is beautifully signed and dated with an impressed "Auer 2000" mark to the lower side. Walter Auer was born in Campo Tures, Italy in 1957.
