Boaz Vaadia (Israeli / American 1951-2017) Adam, 1985
Item Details
Description
Boaz Vaadia (Israeli / American 1951-2017) Adam, 1985 slate (44.5cm high, 11.5cm wide, 15cm deep (17.5in high, 4.5in wide, 6in deep)) Provenance: Art Palace Gallery, New York; Private Collection, London. Footnote: Boaz Vaadia was an internationally renowned sculptor known for hand-cutting slabs of bluestone and slate and then stacking them thus, creating male and female forms. In 1985 he created Adam, named after a guest who was staying in his loft, which was his first such figural sculpture. This would mark a significant moment in his oeuvre, and a development into a distinct new sculptural style that would become synonymous of his work. It set him on a path to international prominence and his personal totems, evoking ritual and primal forces, with an instinctive nod to his homeland but without overt religious connotations, grace prominent private and public collections around the world including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco, the Time Warner Building, New York, the Israel Museum, Jerusalem and the private collection of Elton John.
