Description of work
Bronze figurative sculpture of a casual photo session: man with a camera photographing three people.
Artist statement
Johnson begins with a small clay model to fashion the gesture and pose of a figure. Once the pose is established, the artist works with a live model to sculpt the face and the exact position and a nude figure is cast in plaster. The clothes are then sewn onto the cast figure. Resin is applied to stiffen all the fabrics. The piece is then cast in wax, refined, and a ceramic mold is made in preparation for casting in bronze. Bronze details are added after.
