William Eicholtz is a contemporary sculptor, taking figurative art from its traditional lineage then reforming and placing it firmly in current artistic dialogue. Evoking classic themes, his sensual sculptures rejoice in metaphor and the physical, with a particular focus on the male nude. Eicholtz acknowledges, in both theme and technique, the figure's place in the classical history of art, then appropriates and translates it into a language infused with a humour and theatricality that embraces modern art. studio02
