Ira Reines, ‘Fire and Rose’, 2016, Galerie d'Orsay

American sculptor Ira Reines is internationally celebrated for his fluid, tactile bronze sculptures that depict beauty born of chaos, figures emerging from amorphous matter—an intensely personal style developed by Reines known as “Scuptural Etherealism.” Through his sculptures, Reines explores the relationship between the human experience and the cosmos—order and chaos—and represents the sublime beauty that arises as a result. His sculptures bear intimate marks of his hands and sculpting tools, providing insight into the physical process Reines performs to shape his figures out of organic masses.
