Boxing hares in iron resin.
Limited edition of 36 - numbered and signed by the artist.
A beautiful limited edition piece epitomising the movement and balance that Martin seeks to achieve in his sculptures. The attention to detail that hallmarks his work is critical here in establishing the relationship between the two hares - creating the sense of drama and tension typical of a Martin Duffy sculpture.
At nearly a metre tall, the hares would be suitable for a large indoor space or an outdoor setting, as illustrated.
Martin Duffy has been ideating and producing exceptional figurative sculptures since 1996.
After spending time as a professional woodcarver, Martin Duffy studied figurative sculpture at Stafford Art College, under the R.B.S. sculptor, Michael Talbot. It was there he greatly developed the skill and passion for his craft. Since then, his career has gone from strength to strength, and he continues to specialise in figurative sculpture commissions covering a wide variety of subjects from dancers, animals, and portraits to motor sport.
He also boasts an extensive range of limited edition sculptures cast in bronze and other materials for the garden and home. Martin Duffy is frequently sought out to produce pieces for private clients, as well as corporate projects, such as a 2012 commission to create a sculpture for the entrance hall of one of the Olympic training venues. Not only that, his work has been featured in multiple private collections across continents, including North America, Europe and Asia. He has also worked closely alongside recognised sculptors including John McKenna, Jonathan Wylder and Irena Sedlecka.
Other notable mentions include appearances at outdoor sculpture exhibitions, such as a regular feature at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. ‘I try to create powerful and dramatic sculptures, which have a beauty of form. Sculpture should be tactile, drawing the viewer to want to interact physically as well as visually with the work. With a lifetime fascination with the way the body moves, I enjoy the challenge of capturing the essence of movement, balance, and tension within a static sculpture.’ – Martin Duffy
