Completion of KOUROS 2013…

KOUROS_2013_low_rezThe recently completed KOUROS 2013 has shipped to Alberta, Canada for installation in a private collection.  Hitchcock’s newest sculpture is a reference to those representations of male youths which first appear in the Archaic period in Greece.  Traditional Kouroi are layered with meaning, always beardless, take a formulaic advancing posture, and are most often nude.  Hitchcock’s version takes a decidedly erotic turn with the addition of the erect phallus, and the advancing posture replaced by chain suspensions which arrest all motion. The hands are literally bolted to the sides.

 

The sculpture is derived from casts taken from two men and is comprised of steel and fiberglass reinforced gypsum.  It hangs on two fifteen foot chains, though shown here suspended from a scaffolding.
