If  ‘Oblique Perspective’  shares a passing resemblance to  ‘Reversed Equation‘  the reason is hardly coincidental,   for these two standing stones were carved in succession,  and together form the final two sculptures of the ‘1314 Winter Collection‘.

 Oblique Perspective and Reversed Equation

Almost immediately on completing this piece, at the end of March 2014, I was headed to Italy… and so began my three month Tuscan adventure (as documented in the series of Blog Posts grouped under the ‘Rogue Carver on the Loose in Italy‘ banner).   Both of these sculptures share the reversed equation of deflecting the focus of attention to the areas I have completely removed of stone,  and both project a rough-hewn pitched finish… a process I began to explore with ‘Wolf Man Jack‘, and together these three sculptures serve to conclude the ‘1314 Winter Collection‘  by introducing a new element to my carving that I am eager to explore in future collections.  However whereas ‘Reversed Equation’ was all curves and femininity,   and Wolf Man Jack all attitude and edginess,  ‘Oblique Perspective’ is almost bookish in comparison.   And as with all of the 1314 Collection standing stones  ‘Oblique Perspective’  is very easy to turn in whichever direction most suits the situation, and is secured by a single steel rod, therefore eliminating the chance of being toppled by the wind… an errant pet, or partying party guest for that matter.

But just in case anyone is left thinking that Oblique Perspective is a summer only sort of sculpture, let me set the record straight, O.P. has weathered many a Colorado Rocky Mountain winter storm; freezing cold temperatures (-20f), blistering sun, and howling winds – quite often at the same time!
