Josh Keyes Translates “Lifted II” into Sculpture

Saddened by the cruelty endured by circus animals, Josh Keyes recently created his first sculpture based on his 2012 painting, Lifted II. The sculpture of the same title takes Keyes's voluminous painting style into the 3D realm. Submerged figures are a hallmark of his work, creating a tension between the water's calm and the eminent peril of a flood. Keyes says he would like to translate other paintings of his into sculptures to offer a multi-faceted perspective on his imagery. Take a look at some other images of the work after the jump.
