Wim van der Kant
Cursus- 21st Century Contemporary Bronze Sculpture of Two Nude Running Boys

2017

$12,680.53

About

This beautiful bronze statue stands on a pedestal of natural stone. Together with the pedestal, the image is 80 cm high. The boys without the pedestal are 46 cm high. The running boys are perfectly stylized naked and anatomically. Wim van der Kant's sculptures are in bronze. Wim van der Kant does everything in the process itself. As a result, only a few sculptures of the artist are available for sale. We're used to ship this sculptures to buyers and collectors all over the world in specially, handmate wooden boxes.. What struck us first during our acquaintance with the artist is the enormous passion for his work, the attention to detail, and the incredible amount of work hidden behind the images shown. The images Wim van der Kant makes show perfection when it comes to the posture and anatomy of the playing boys. But also emotion when it comes to the expression and their attitude. The images of Wim van der Kant show boys, naked, playing, uninhibited. Why boys and why naked? Wim van der Kant himself says the following about this: The same question, with the same intention, made to an artist who makes animal sculptures is probably most embarrassing to most. The answer is simple: because I am one myself. Gradually I think I am busy transforming a number of intense feelings and experiences from my own childhood into images. Discovering that you can do things, yourself. Seeing what your own body means as a vehicle for your soul. The realization that the whole world is open to you. In that sense, my work has more to do with scouting than with eroticism. While working, I also found out that I do not have much to do with images of women made by men, or vice versa. That is only too fast lust objects. If an image strikes me somewhere through its power of expression, it's ten to one that the maker has the same gender as the image. After modeling in wax, the shape, anatomy, posture, actually everything, is perfectly executed. Yet there is still a long way to go. A mold is made of silicone from the waxed wax image. This mold serves to cast the bronze sculptures. The mold is used for a maximum of 8 times. When the image is cast in bronze the next phase begins. The cooled bronze is freed from its mold. Then the bronze is processed. This gives it the bronze color or the gray color. This is called patination. This patination is an intensive process that can take up to 80 hours in one image. Because the anatomy and the small details in the images are of great importance, the artist does all this himself abrasion and patination. We always have work in stock from this particularly gifted artist. Have you seen a picture of the artist that is not on the website, please contact us, we are happy to help you. The last two pictures the way we ship our sculptures, safe and firm packed in a big wooden box.
