Engineer by profession, sculptor by passion. Originally from Romania, Rada has now called Brisbane Queensland home for 26 years. Known for works such as 'The Wheel', he has been featured in The Australian Woodworker Magazine. Browse the gallery to see some of his inspirations or visit the website at www.sculpturada.com . Although not all Rada's works are still open to the public, new works are available on a commission basis. The artist invites your contact should you you find something pleasing to the eye.
From the artist:
"I believe that sculpture is music to the eye, instinct driven toward a harmony of matter and soul. When the sleepless unseen energy sees the shape within, matter obeys. It's the INQUISITOR that makes the difference! The challenge is to find the patience to follow that shape, which will hopefully open the gate to the spiritual dimension of matter.
Wood sculpture is my quest of many years to find new life in once living materials. My works speak to human existence and destiny, created as windows to the unseen parts of our world. Each work is physically larger than its inspiration and often detailed; some pieces exhibit large circular repetitive motions or incorporate basic metals and symbolic components. I believe that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. " - Rada from www.sculpturada.com
