"The Dancer" embodies an interpretation inspired by the motif found in select paintings by Henri Matisse.
About the Artist
Andrew Stevens, a full-time farmer residing near Timaru, discovered his passion for sculpting wood seven years ago. Despite never having demonstrated any prior artistic ability, he embarked on this new journey into the world of artistry. Andrew firmly believes in the existence of numerous creative outlets, emphasising the importance of discovering one's unique path. He champions the notion that each individual possesses untapped creative potential waiting to be explored.
Andrew is thrilled to showcase his work once again at the Lake Tekapo Sculpture walk. This exhibition marks a significant milestone in his artistic endeavors, highlighting the evolution from a farmer to a burgeoning wood sculptor.
