Skepsis (maquette red/green) a smaller version
created by Nikolas
Limited Edition of 28 in Bronze
Skepsis maquette red-green patina – A man sitting on his knees thinking. What is he thinking? Wondering, has he reached a decision? And why is he sitting on his knees? These questions are posed on the viewer. Maybe he is on the verge of making up his mind and standing up. He sits still for the moment, but movement is anticipated.
In Skepsis, Nikolas combines two seminal sculptural concepts with a brilliant result. On the one hand there is the type of the Thinker, most famous from the homonymous work by Rodin. On the other, the grand tradition of Protocycladic sculptures, with their elegance and minimal aesthetic.
