James Sondow, ‘The Bearer’, 2005, Kate Oh Gallery

The figure’s contrapposto creates a zigzag compositional line made of the asymmetrical arrangement of the standing leg, pelvis, torso, and head. The orientation of each, contrasts while balances the opposing diagonal thrust of the piece under it, creating an anatomical spring to support the weight the figure bears. With raised hands and simplified facial features, we are left to imagine his expression along with his burden.
