Carl Payne’s extraordinary figurative sculpture is based on traditional tenets but has a bold contemporary style. He is part of an artistic movement in which technical skill, quality and craftsmanship are valued and enjoyed within a modern and forward thinking aesthetic. He is inspired by music, the female form and a host of artistic figures including Rodin, Alfred Gilbert and Charles Sargant Jagger, as well as many of the Pre-Raphaelites.
ODILE Pure Bronze Edition of 95, 7” x 20” £2,250
As the partner piece to Odette, this work is a second mesmerising tribute to the complex and enigmatic princesses from Swan Lake. Although inspired by the world of classical ballet, Carl has chosen to explore the subtleties of facial expression rather than the shaping and movement of a dancer’s body, to breath taking effect.
