Hare with cabbage
Height: 535 mm
Sergei Falkin creates a very very cinematic image of the hare in his new bronze work. In the plastique of sculpture, in the line of curiously raised ears, in the light movement of the hare’s ” trim” figure – in all this you can read a certain inner story or a tale. The image of the animal is as if slightly wary, looking around carefully, perhaps because he has just taken this cabbage from someone else’s vegetable garden, or, gathering his harvest, has heard suspicious noises from the outside. The sculpture allows the viewer’s imagination to fly.
The author creates an extremely expressive plastique silhouette: the precise line of the profile, like ancient Egyptian sculptures, and the gaze that comes alive in the glare of light on the patina – all this gives the bronze hare a certain expression.
