Modern Art Oxford Hans Josephsohn
Hans Josephsohn

23rd Feb - 14th Apr 2013

Josephson’s powerful and imposing bronze reclining nudes, ‘semi-figures’ and abstract relief panels reveal a sensitive and dedicated examination of figure, form and plane.
This extensive exhibition includes many works seen in the UK for the first time and focuses on works created in the last 25 years of his life.
Strongly influenced by the work of fellow Swiss artist, Alberto Giacometti, the works are also reminiscent of Michelangelo’s ‘slave’ torsos and of the totemic sculpture of the Easter Island Moai figures.
