Consolation by Joe Rosenthal

Bronze 1996

 

From the City of Windsor website citywindsor.ca:

 

"In Joe Rosenthal's art, the human figure is presented with impressive weight. The solid rounded shapes of 'Consolation' display a substantial inner fortitude, what some critics have called 'enduring universal toughness'.

 

The artist does not portray the human form as fragile or teetering on the edge of collapse. Instead, Rosenthal's heavy sculpture seems able to hold its own ground against the chaos of conflicting forces."
