John D. Antone’s bronze sculptures are created with the ancient “lost wax” and “lost mold” casting techniques, wherein the original model or mold is destroyed in order to finish the piece. There is no room for mistakes in transforming Antone’s fragile models into bronze; failure means all the hours of his work on the model are lost. While classical bronze sculptures are normally solid, closed forms, Antone’s sculptures assemble “found” objects with his architectonic forms, paying particular attention to the effects of light and shadow.
