Maya Booman-Amico's SBU Clare 209 Sum 1 Puffy Metal
These sculptures were created by Fernando Botero; a famous artist from Medellin, Colombia. He has a signature style known as "Boterismo", which depicts the subject matter in largely exaggerated volume.
This bird was sculpted in 1996 by Fernando Botero. The subject matter is the fat, squat, bronze bird. This piece represents the joy of living and the power of optimism. I chose this sculpture because the rounded forms are fun.
Fernando Botero sculpted this horse in 1996. The subject matter is the voluminous horse. I liked this piece because the exaggerated volume of his legs was comical.
This cat was sculpted by Fernando Botero in 1996. The subject matter is the chubby, bronze cat. I like this piece the most because its obvious that the cat was made by a gifted artist, but the humor in the sculpture is dominant.
Fernando Botero sculpted this man on a horse in 1996. The subject matter includes a robust horse with a figure riding it and reflects an image of fantasy. I like this piece because both the horse and man were beautifully sculpted and appear very animated.
This sculpture was created by Fernando Botero in 1996. The subject matter is a "fat" still life. The form of the table itself is grossly exaggerated. I like this piece because it details a unique view of a common still life setup.
