A few portraits and details of my bronze sculpture characters…

Fine Art 10 Dec 2016

Expression in modern sculpture is not to be taken for granted. 
Portrait close-up of Eagle Owl in bronze.

High detail and a good knowledge of basic anatomy, structure and composition  is essential for contemporary animalier..

Little Sprinting Warthog Maquette, what a fright. Grrrrooooinkkkk!!!

Black Eagle one of the greatest metaphors of power, such a beady eyeball…

Sprinting Hare Maquette the Riverine Rabbit as inspiration, running the race of life.

Porcupine what a dark, prickly character!

Barn Owl, double life size in bronze.

Wood Owl, bashful, sleepy and heard more often than seen…


Sitting Warthog Maquette having a good scratch…what a pig..

My Portfolio: I am a sculptor and artist. I studied Fine Art at Mandela Metropolitan University. I worked as a fettler and an artisan at a bronze foundry for a couple of years. I was a teacher of sculpture at Somerset College for four and a half years and also lectured space and volume at Stellenbosch University for a short period. I did teach sculpture privately. I have a public studio/gallery in Stellenbosch South Africa. I do private and corporate commissions on sculptural portraiture, animal and bird sculptures. Sculptures are made in wax, plasticine or plaster before I have them cast in bronze. I am currently represented by the George Thornton Art Gallery in the UK, Nottingham, where I have sculptures on Exhibition. Locally in South Africa I have a few bronze sculptures at the Posthouse Gallery as well as an extensive collection of bronze sculptures at my Studio Gallery, 44 Church Street Stellenbosch South Africa. I do illustrative pen and ink drawings and the occasional lithograph. My other website is www.stephenrautenbach.co.za and www.stephenrautenbach.com
