2012 ArtPrize Entry
Save

“Seahorse,” constructed by Craig Merchant, stands over 6 ft tall and it is constructed with clay and resin. The body of the seahorse is hollow and sections of the sculpture are made of transparent resin that will allow light to pass through the sculpture. The artist is inspired by nature and he often distorts the scale of the creatures in his artwork to present them in a new way to the viewer.

Venue & Connection Information

The sculpture is constructed with clay and resin, and it is intended to be displayed outdoors. The body of the seahorse is hollow and sections of the sculpture are made of transparent resin that will allow light to pass through the sculpture, so an area with good natural light is preferred. The sculpture is very heavy and will require hard ground or a cement surface to be displayed on. Easy access to the display location is important due to the weight of the sculpture.
