Brancusi! A Romanian born sculptor who lived in Paris and worked under Rodin. Brancusi is famous for his simplification of forms to geometrical and sparse objects to which he proclaimed to be getting to the essence. It is this simplification that I am drawn to and I find inspiration in. This smooth and slightly sensual shaping is alluring and something to which I aspire.
