Site #4 – David

By:

2013 Bronze and Bluestone, 91 in. h. x 36 in. w. x 36 in. d. 2/5, Ed. of 5. Artist: Boaz Vaadia, b. 1951, Gat Rimon, Israel, Israeli-American, living in New York, NY


What piece could better exemplify the contemporary representation of the cultural icon of Sarasota than Vaadia’s David! Let’s begin the discussion of Michelangelo’s David, as seen in reproduction at the Ringling Museum and Vaadia’s representation of his coreligionist’s epic stance.

Additional works by this artist can be seen on display at the Sarasota Herald Tribune building on Main Street in downtown Sarasota January 8 through May 30, 2014.
