|Life-size and life-like, Bruno Walpoth's figures are usually named for the model, though this figure is titled. This is a detail view of a nude teenage boy.|
|Bruno Walpoth carves wood every day for a living. It's only "no big deal" |
if you're not a woodcarving sculptor.
|Walpoth stains his wood with white pigments as he carves, |
which accounts for the translucent quality of his flesh tones.
|There is a somnambulant quality to many of Walpoth's works.|
|Part painting, part sculpture.|
|Probably one of Walpoth's|
|The flesh tones of Walpoth's work have a smooth, polished, finish while in contrast, clothing is merely roughed in.|
|Walpoth is quite clever in integrating the heavy base of his sculptures with the figure itself, demonstrating the manner in which the sculptor causes the human form to emerge from its confinement.|
