    Opening Cocktail to inaugurate the new Bronze Sculpture Exhibition by Artist Bjorn Okholm Skaarup

    My work plays between the limits of nature and culture, says

    sculptor Bjrn Okholm Skaarup. The animals are thoroughly

    culturalizedthey represent human allegories or use manmade

    tools.

    Okholm Skaarup has created a contemporary bestiary, or classical

    book of animals, in bronze. Each sculpture presents a whimsical

    story or allegory to decipher, with sources ranging from ancient

    fables and art history to music and modern animation. The

    Majestic Lion, traditional king of the animals, wears the crown

    and armor of a great monarch in the style of Medici court sculptor

    Giambologna, yet he sits astride a rocking horse, a reference to

    his fleeting and jovial power. Frogs reenact Homeric battles in

    the Batrachomyomachia, while mice peer through spectacles and

    listen at telephones as The Five Senses. A cheetah rides a scooter

    to move faster, a giraffe stands on stilts to reach higher, and a

    kangaroo bounces on a pogo sticka kngurustylte in Okholm

    Skaarups native Danish.

    From 1994-2004, Okholm Skaarup was an artist at the Danish

    National Museum, Copenhagen, before moving to Florence and

    receiving a PhD from the European University Institute in 2009.

    While in Florence, he studied the work of Renaissance sculptors

    Donatello, Michelangelo, and Giambologna, learning the

    vanishing art of large-scale bronze casting.

    I am constantly trying to improve my skills in modeling, and see

    how far the medium can go, Okholm Skaarup explains. How

    many fun details you can add, how many forms you can create

    ideally large, heavy forms that rest on light foundations, so the

    work appears as vibrant as possible. With bronze, you can make

    the most dynamic shapes imaginable.

    The bronze form of a capricorn, clinging to a mountaintop as it is

    being lifted into the air, is just such a tour de force of contemporary

    bronze working. In a post-cataclysmic world, flooded by ever-

    rising oceans, the capricorn takes refuge on the highest mountain

    peak, only to be rescued by a hardy rat piloting a zeppelin and

    bringing it to safety.

    In Okholm Skaarups intricately polychrome work, he explores

    the voluminous form of a tutu and leotard-clad hippo, which

    at once references Degass Little Dancer of Fourteen Years and

    Walt Disneys Fantasia. Or another hippo, sprawled in
