Just a few days ago, the artist, Franz West, passed away. So today, we will take a glimpse and celebrate the range of work he created in his 65 years of life. While West worked in both two and three dimensions, he is primarily recognized for his work as a sculptor. He successfully established a personal characteristic to his prodigious plaster sculptures. Their rumpled appearance provide a delightfully textural viewing experience. West creates warped, abstracted and figurative forms that rise above and compliment the enthralling surface details. His work is displayed in museums around the world, so the opportunity to see his brilliant work is still available.
