"Hide and Seek" Bronze Sculpture by David Unger

US$1,800Asking Price

About

Bronze, signed on rear leg, featuring two children hiding in their mother's dress. Measures: 14" x 6" x 4" including the base. “David Unger’s work,” observed Akron Beacon Journal art critic Dorothy Shinn, “is reminiscent of the works of the English modernist Henry Moore only with planes and angles.” Unger’s style is a unique combination of angular, geometric and realistic figures with abstract geometric forms. Born in 1941 in Poughkeepsie, New York, Unger began his formal study of sculpture at the age of 10. Since that early age, he has demostrated a fascination and a natural ability for working with his hands, molding, shaping, carving and chiseling. “I love the feeling of clay,” Unger explained. “I’ve made many things in wood with the chisel and the mallet, but clay is much more rewarding for me.” His natural eye and rare ability for developing form, dimension and proportion has resulted in Unger’s unique style. Unger studied sculpture privately with world renowned sculptor, Chaim Gross, whose works are acclaimed internationally.
