INDOOR OR OUT PURE ELEGANCE



I present to you a brand new sculpture from my series 'The Kiss, Homage to Rodin". It is completely first class, modern & contemporary all the way. Made of a single strand of Aluminum it is shaped to reflect 2 beings intertwined in a romantic fashion. Note how the 2 shapes work together as masculine and feminine, locked together in embrace. It is a very sexy piece.At 28 inches tall it is very substantial. The sculpture is made of intricately patterned custom etched aluminum which I have formed and shaped by hand using time tested metal fabrication techniques and machinery. The curves are smooth and sleek. I have formed this piece in a manner which allows the viewer to see both sides and patterns simultaneously by the nature of the twists and curves of the piece. It will never change in color or texture, what it will do is reflect and refract light changing as the viewer shifts positions. I have tried to show the beauty of this piece using pics taken from various angles. No part of this piece will ever rust or deteriorate in outdoor conditions. Construction is 100% welded. Protected with a high quality clear coat. It is signed and dated by the artist, Andre Tourrette

ARTIST STATEMENT

Andre Tourrette turned on a welding machine at the age of fifteen and never turned it off. Now, thirty years later, having made a living repairing everything from half full dumpsters to nuclear reactors on submarines, his desire to work with metal burns hotter than ever. The scope of the metal sculptures he creates ranges from one end of the spectrum to the other, which is synonymous with his imagination and personality.

The Brooklyn native works with a thought process which is the opposite of most sculptors. The end result is a product of whatever was on hand during the creation of the piece. Andre’s studio is the metal shop he makes his living at, where sculptures are created from leftover materials from 'real life' jobs. The material must be seen for what it is in order for the beauty to be drawn out from it. Everything you see is made from recyclable materials salvaged from the scrap bin. At times this is very obvious, most times it is not.

The majority of Andre's work is abstract. He does his best when there are no rules. When putting together sculptures or useful pieces of art such as furniture, the envelope is pushed to its limit concerning balance and gravity. Most of his works appear that they defying these principals.

Proud to have work collected across the earth, a few recent accomplishments include work being viewed in the Contemporary Art Museum in St Louis, galleries in Chicago, Brooklyn and Philadelphia, as well as a commission for The Hard Rock Cafe in Las Vegas.

The item is fine. We gave it as a gift to be sent to Canada before we arrived for a visit. It arrived long after we left. The item did not go out on the date said and though we paid a lot for shipping it was sent USPS. When we communicated with the artist he was defensive, and rude, blaming us, and very disturbing. I support artists and every gift I give I try to give from an artist. This is the first time I have had this kind of unfortunate communication and will not be buying any more of his work.

Andre Tourrette responded

The item was shipped within the time parameters on the listing. Not my fault you didnt purchase early enough to compensate for Canadian Customs. Concerning shipping costs, you paid actual cost. If I had enough space to display our conversation most would agree im not the rude one. Your the first displeased customer ive had leave me less than 5 stars since 2009 when I joined ETSY, so maybe im not the problem here.
