Description/

As collectibles, Bronze Bookends contrast the large-scale works that Christopher Kurtz produces; as these objects d’art are both functional as bookends and can exist as sculptures interacting independently on a tabletop or shelf. The wedge-like forms originated as wooden cutoffs from Kurtz’s linenfold series of trompe l’oeil drapery carvings and fluted columns. The wooden cut offs were refined as bookends and then cast in solid bronze. The concave and convex profile sliced on the bias creates five digit-like protrusions at the top. When the bookends pair together, they resemble clasped hands pointing upward like cathedral forms, offering a symbol of solace during these turbulent times.
