This painting is a reproduction of a page from a book on Anthony Caro. It’s from Realf Heygate's ongoing series of paintings depicting photographs of sculpture.
“Over the past couple of years I have been gradually developing a series of oil paintings depicting printed reproductions of sculpture. This is essentially the condensing of sculpture to a flat plane. I’m interested to see what is lost and what is gained through this act of re-materialisation. The manual action of painting is perhaps a way for me to interact with the depicted sculptures in a tangible way - with my hands, even if indirectly. The title ‘photosculpture’ derives from a 19th centrum device for creating sculptural objects from two dimensional images.” - Realf Heygate, 2021
