Daddazio`s subject and sculptural niche since 1992 has been and continues to be necktie sculpture (Contemporary Urban Primitive Art) in both bronze and mixed-media. He studies the necktie as an icon and symbol of Western culture, rather than a fashion statement. He is also the first artist in the four hundred year history of the cravat/necktie to make figurative and representational bronze sculptures of the necktie/cravat. An article in the Italian Magazine, Nodus, (Milano, 2000) describes him as the "Maestra di Trasformismo" (Di Simona P.K. Da...
These are the original three representational bronze necktie sculptures that were created in 1992. They were modeled in plaster over a steel armature and cast in bronze using the Lost Wax Method at Pietrasanta Fine Arts Foundry in Soho, NYC: Repp Stripe; Repp Buff; Repp Textured. Forbes Magazine published an editorial on the artist and the representational bronze necktie sculpture Brown Stripe.
The Representational bronze necktie sculptures are examples of the potential for memorializing specific tribal icons as we know and love. For example, Regimental Ties, University Ties, College Ties, and Club Ties can be memorialized in bronze.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."

Hi Sarah, opened sculpture today and have to say thank you, it`s a beautiful piece (White Buddha Prayer by Laura Lian) that seems to resonate calmness and serenity, yet the flow of the lines gives it a vibrancy of life, am very happy with my purchase.
