New 3D capabilities in Sculpting
Gadi Fraiman is known for using durable, reliable materials. As an artist he aims for perfection, paying complete respect for the artwork. “I do not compromise. I give the artwork exactly what it needs.” A great act of self-love, in this manner his works receive care and attention. It is rare in our day to meet an artist so dedicated to longevity. He works in the finest quality of stone from around the world, stainless steel, bronze, and the paints he uses equally strive for resistance of time. As a result, works from forty years ago, as well as any public projects, remain fresh and rust-free.
“People think because I care about materials and take my time, I don’t like technology. That’s not true. Technology is beautiful. It’s part of us, it’s part of human nature and development. It’s part of nature.” Indeed whilst maintaining a slow pace and taking great care while working in stone, he also makes use of cutting edge technology. “I recently started working with 3D printing to make models for my bronze works.” Gadi creates small models out of plaster on a metal base, which are then scanned digitally, and printed in monumental size. In this way, he uses cutting edge technology to easily enlarge his sculptures, thus being able to experiment more freely and joyfully with size. In this way he created some of his newest Mask series sculptures in 2020.
