Time Fragment

Time Fragment/Homage to the Masters by Henry Schiowitz. Raised in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, Schiowitz began sculpting at the age of 13 and even had his first exhibition by the age of 15. After graduating high school he traveled to Italy to apprentice in using bronze and marble. When describing his time there Schiowitz said working in that environment gave him an adrenaline rush. This sculpture is him paying tribute to sculptors before him, since this is an enlarged version of Michelangelo’s David sculptures head. Even how the art is placed is a homage to Constantin Brancusi‚Äôs Head of a Sleeping Child. It took 3 years and over a dozen artisans to complete. This piece can be found at the Sculpture Garden of the Jim Kempner Art Gallery on 501 West 23rd Street, but hurry this is the last month it will be on display.
