‘Untitled 2012’ from Scott Radke

  • by

Scott Radke recently dazzled us yet again with another one of his lovely maidens, revealed last week via his Facebook page. Another masterpiece of burlap, clay and twigs, she looks to stand at least two feet. Predictably, her haunting gentleness caught someone’s gaze and she sold immediately. Scroll for more photos of stroll through the forest.


Scott Radke Finishes Totem Commission #2

In a little over one month, Scott Radke has wrapped up his second totem commission, this one going out to actress/producer Nathalie Rheims. Standing an astonishing 6’9″ (81″) tall,  the sculpture is crafted from clay and burlap. These just keep getting better; peep the gallery below for close-ups of these enchanting creatures.

Scott Radke’s Second Totem is All Stacked Up and Ready to Paint

Yeah, so like I was saying: Scott Radke doesn’t waste any time. Following last week’s teasers of his second totem commission for actress/producer Nathalie Rheims, comes the next (and final) creatures for the piece, which look to be a rabbit and goddess. I love the movement of this piece  and the liveliness of these creatures despite the totem being a static sculpture. The hunch of the raccoon from all of the weight, the goddess teetering on top … just incredible. Very excited to see it all painted up. More photos to come!

Scott Radke Finishes the Totem

The totem is finally complete. Stacked four high and measuring an astounding 5’8″ with a three foot wingspan, Scott Radke pulled out all the stops for this commission for filmmaker Morgan Spurlock. Nearly six months in the making, this monster tower of human-animal hybrids is crafted from clay and burlap. Breathtaking. May it travel safely to its new owner! More images below.

A Most Lovely Mermaid from Scott Radke …

  • by

Alright, so bad news first: this pretty much sold as soon as it hit the web, so … we lose. But regardless, this piece must be seen. Lovingly cradling a newborn in her arms, Mermaid is a breathtaking one-of-a-kind mixed media sculpture — the second from Scott Radke this week. Pictures rarely do scope justice: measuring nearly four feet tall and a foot-and-half wide (48″x18″), she’s as enormous as she is enchanting. Amazing. More shots after the jump, have a look!
