Two Standing Poets

By Ernest Trova
Category: Sculpture


The Poet series is characterized by simplified black steel forms. The figure that represents the Poet is often so abstracted as to be almost unrecognizable. Trova presents the Poets not as specific people, but rather as person-sized monoliths. Their identity as figures is not created through specificity of form, but implied through their size and relationship with their surroundings.
