Artist / Studio Name: Karel du Toit
CATEGORY:: Artists
Type: Sculpture
Venue / Exhibition: Please contact for more information.
About: (Artist’s description): Karel is a hands-on sort of guy. His fingers literally play sculptural music with clay, as they knead and shape, and “thumb” and pinch. A magical process in which very few and only rudimentary tools are employed. This is the creative process that he calls “a visual distillation of the subject, until only its most potent essence remains”. Interpreting that essence into a three-dimensional sculpture has seen him create works varying from the most intricate woodcarvings of birds, to elaborate life-sized bronze sculptures of South African wildlife. The expansive range of his versatility has also resulted in impressions of the human form, employing a variety of mediums in their execution. Bronze is clearly the vehicle through which his individual style of expressiveness fluently translates.

Karels’ sculptures are cast by Renzo Vignali artistic foundry, the oldest of its kind in Southern Africa. Using the cire perdue (lost wax) method, the pure mastery of fine craftsmanship brings the pieces to life, only awaiting a careful fettling and finishing of the raw casting. Like a fine artist approaching a primed canvas, Karel formulates and concocts his patinas to compliment each piece, carefully taking light and shade into consideration. All works are both limited and signed editions, rarely numbering more than nine castings per work. The K.du Toit signature is becoming recognized amongst art dealers and collectors alike, indicating a sound basis for investing in this vast resource of talent.
