  • Catalogue Essay

    “ …sculpture is a dramatization of the space between your eye and the world, between looking and recording, between what you see and feel and memory...”

    Widely praised for his deft interpretations of the complex interplay of two and three dimensionality combined with a forceful confrontation of the touchstones of Modernisim, Thomas Houseago has set forth a bold and startling new vision for figurative sculpture. Forged in a rough-hewn, yet sophisticated manner, Houseago excels in every material in his repertoire, from plaster to wood and metals.

    Untitled, 2010, evokes a brute and primeval intensity tempered with grace and restraint. Rendered in, black patinated bronze, Houseago has created a totem that provides visceral insight into the human psyche, but one attuned to our era. “I guess this is the thing of being artists of the 21st Century. The 20th Century comes to us without this linear index....” (T. Houseago, quoted in Houseago & A. Curry, ‘Conversation: Aaron Curry Thomas Houseago: Standing Figures’, pp. 86-89, FlashArt, March-April 2010, p. 89).
