Richard Hunt is an acclaimed and prolific sculptor best known for his commissioned public sculptures found in numerous American cities. His work embodies classical ideals and traditions in a unique style of abstraction that combines both industrial and organic elements. Bridges are architectural and symbolic references to which Hunt repeatedly returns for his large-scale sculptures. In Bigger Bridge, the artist utilizes welding methods to create a fractured trunk from which branch-like forms precariously yet harmoniously spurn. This work exemplifies Hunt?s masterful ability to wield his materials, stretching them beyond their own physical restrictions, to create a carefully considered balance of forms infused with energy and rich in referential associations.
