Olympic Sculler (in association with Mark Hunter Beijing Gold Medalist)

L 488mm x W 209mm x H 253mm  Limited edition of 10 bronze resin castings

The piece is striking for two reasons. Firstly, a figurative sculpture of a rower is highly unusual and, secondly, the high attention to detail on the text book position of “The Catch”. I wanted to get the pose as correct as possible and who better to get that information from but from someone who has rowed for his country and won Olympic Gold. I worked very closely with Mark, studying and consulting with him at various points in the process. I am delighted to say that Mark is delighted with the final result.
