Phillip Piperides: The Nude - Art Collector

Philip Piperides, Resting Dancer, Bronze. 58 x 33 x 58cm. Edition 2/11. Courtesy of The Artist and Anthea Polson Art, Queensland.

During Phillip Piperides’ recent travels through Europe he was impressed by the great number of monumental statues, both modern and contemporary, that adorn the plazas. He recognised how the general populace became unwittingly immersed in art as they conducted their daily lives amidst them. Inspirational as this was, and notwithstanding the many monumental public commissions he too had made back in Australia, Piperides felt the need to again create more intimate works. The resultant bronzes are focused on the studio model and the searching for a nuance in the pose that will evoke the essence of his subject. “More than naturalistic representations, my work is about capturing moments which occupy a space in time.”
