Light and shade reinforce and camouflage the form in this dramatic etching. It relates to the first drawings John Maine RA prepared for a sequence of stacked sandstone cylinders he sculpted in 1995. Deeply incised columns at Howden Minister, where a granite version of this work is permanently installed, inspired Maine. Likewise, the animated form and surface reliefs of the Romanesque columns at York Minster’s crypt. Born in Bristol, contemporary sculptor Maine studied at the Royal College of Art, and is exhibited around the world. Artist sales: This work is sold by the artist.
