The Form & Bronze Gallery of modern art, which has branches in St Petersburg and Moscow, has started implementing a large project “Golf. Game as Art”, which aims to combine this most popular game and art.

HM The Queen

The first works of this new direction are bronze sculptures by the famous sculptor Aramare Vecchio who presented his idea of how The Queen, Churchill, Sherlock Holmes with Doctor Watson, and Don Quixote with Sancho Panza would play golf.

Eduard Bychkov, golfer and curator of the project, ‘Golf. Game as Art’, says, “Realizing clarity of his ideological plan and perfection of forms, you understand that the fine arts and golf, apparently, have never been as close as here and how precisely for the embodiment of common cause the style of Art deco is picked up.

Winston Churchill

“The presented collection of cabinet statues will decorate an interior, will be the embodiment of your prestige and will become a significant gift for your friends and partners. The series of bronze figures of the “Golf” series reveals bright images of the famous literary and historical characters, which unite in them virtuosity of execution and the English humor.

“In this creative fantasy and also in its expressive embodiment, the author’s irony and desire to show a variety of characters of players is felt. Ah! It is so difficult sometimes to the golfer to constrain the emotions overflowing him in a rigid framework of etiquette.

“Having established the rules, Vecchio does not seek to create an ideal image of the player, he involves the viewer in the small performance of transformation which it puts on the stages of several European theaters.

Don Quixote and Sancho Panza

“The author chooses the most expressive art decisions for the figures, perfectly depicts details of suits and finds effective foreshortenings. He uses all palette of opportunities of the patinated bronze. Strengthening a play of textures due to comparison of the rough and grinded to golden gloss surfaces, the master obtains the refinement of style.”
