“Defying Adversity”

The poem, Invictus, by William Earnest Henley describes a sense of defiance in the face of adversity. Washington State artist David Varnau captured this spirit by evoking an image of a strong yet vulnerable male figure. The figure is seated rather than holding a stance of swagger or triumph. Although down on the ground and perhaps humbled, he seems to still possess a sense of inner strength and self-assurance. David’s sculptures have been exhibited at Gallery North in Edmonds WA as well as Parklane Gallery in Kirkland WA. Two Ravens Studio creates many of David’s molds and is his preferred artisan foundry for casting his one of a kind, figurative works.
