Walter Horak

September 3 - September 25, 2011

Walter Horak’s bronzes, at times quiet and contemplative, and at times charged with energy, explore the language of the human form. Recalling Chinese calligraphy, architectural structures, and, most predominantly, modern dance and contortion, Horak harnesses the vitality inherent in the human figure to convey poetic visual metaphor.  

He situates himself within the time-honored tradition of figurative sculpture, but imbues his work with his own unique and contemporary aesthetic. Horak’s sculptures hold a tension between introspection and expression, elegance and playfulness.

Walter Horak’s sculptures joined Anne Leone’s underwater paintings of swimmers in the Cenotes of Quintana Roo, Mexico.
