Gyula Varosy

gyulaGyula Varosy makes sculpture out of tree trunks, old structural beams, fragile pieces of wood that have had many lives before. He makes them into a collection of forms that resonate hardship, suffering, loss, yet also perseverance and triumph. Many pieces balance precariously on their bases while others are planted firmly and securely on this earth. Many of his pieces have a bronze element to them. He and his materials are a splendid partnership, with many hours devoted to his sculpture with patience and deliberation. Lately he has been sculpting in wax, which is then cast. The bronzes in the show feature a series of draft horses on solid ground and a second series of small female torsos. In the entrance of the old large barn are his three bronzes of larger -than- life human figures.
