"When I work
on a detail, for exemple a foot,
I imagine balance
of the whole body".
Rob Whittle ‘s work is about mixing
elegance of the movement
with the balance
of the position.
Rob Whittle work chiefly in clay, plaster, wax and metal.
His subjects are taken from movement in dance, circus and everyday life.
His female figures stretched and contorted bodies
in space reveal the tensions and tears of life.
Some sculptures show erotic poses, fantasies or intimate moments recalled.
The sometimes acrobatic stances of his works lead the viewer
through the theatre of his own imagination.
His studies of hands and feet reveal great sensuality and tenderness.
"When working on a detail, for exemple a foot, I think the balance
throughout the whole body" explains the artist.
Whittle ‘s work is an elegant balance
of movement and structure.
