Detailed description

Sculpture "Reading Woman", bronze

Relaxing with a good book - Richard Senoner reproduces this moment with his sensual depiction of the "Reading Woman". His nude sculpture of a young woman is also a homage to literature and reading. The sculpture is vivid and expressive because of the contrasting colours of the patination and the base designed like an opened book.

Senoner's years of experience with his central subjects of nude sculptures, are evident due to the shaping of the proportions. He attaches great importance to a detailed and precise elaboration and gives harmony and aesthetics to his works.

Bronze sculpture, cast using the Lost-Wax-Process, chiselled, polished and patinated by hand. Moulded directly from the original. Limited edition of 49 copies, numbered, signed and hallmarked with the foundry stamp. With numbered certificate of authenticity and limitation. Size 31 x 11 x 20 cm (h/w/d). Weight approx. 6.2 kg. ars mundi Exclusive Edition.

Portrait of the artist Richard Senoner

About Richard Senoner

The South Tyrolean sculptor Richard Senoner has made nudes the focus of his work and perfected the depiction of female bodies in over 15 years. His wooden sculptures show women in various sensual poses. "The nude – the classic motif in art par excellence – gives me the greatest possible scope in my work as a sculptor to translate expressiveness, aesthetics and harmony. My primary concern is to depict the human being in various thematic aspects," he says.

Senoner bases the design of his figures on the real forms of the human physique: "A detailed and precise elaboration characterises my works," says the artist. In addition to female nudes, Senoner's portfolio includes other motifs, especially sacred art.

Senoner mainly uses the wood of the linden tree for his nude sculptures. The sculptures can be up to 70 cm in size. In order to show off the fine grain of the wood and so that the sculptures do not lose their natural appearance, he does not use any colours or glazes. The perfect shaping in combination with the natural material is what makes Senoner's works so impressive.

Richard Senoner was born in 1967 and grew up in Ortisei in Val Gardena. His father, and later teacher, was also a sculptor, so he was born into the art of working with wood. In 1989, he completed his master's degree. Senoner has been a freelance artist since 1990 and has been working with the Meisel Gallery in New York since 2014.
