Director and Artist: Foot Young
Foot's Artworks is the trading name under which Foot Young's sculptures
are made and
distributed throughout the world. Foot is American born, but has been
living and working
primarily in Australia for nearly twenty years, where he is also a citizen.
His contributions to the
evolution of sculpture in Australia, a relatively young country of 18
million people, are
substantial. He is regarded as Australia's foremost environmental sculptor,
as most of the body
of his work focuses on natural subjects, primarily marine mammals. In
the last seven years he has
turned his attention to the most challenging of sculptural aspirations,
that of the human form and
beyond. Diversity, however, has also yielded some interesting results
in other areas such as the
abstract and the surrealistic. A cirriculum
vitae provides additional information.
Foot's choice of mediums undoubtedly reflects his strong feelings regarding
what he terms
'modern art'. However it is realised that all artists aren't lucky enough
to live near one of the
worlds largest deposits of top quality marble, centred around Chilligoe,
in central Queensland or
'the outback'. Marble is almost exclusively what his originals are sculpted
from. From these
master patterns, moulds are made and marble castings are done, using a
technique which Foot
has applied to sculpture and perfected. These Cast
marble sculptures are hardly distinguishable
from the originals and in some respects they are superior, pricewise they
are unmatchable. Note
that works are available in a black marble or a white marble version.
Some of Foot's larger pieces
are done in hot cast bronze, but he also utilises a lower cost option
cast bronze , for his
smaller works, providing identical beauty at fractional cost.
As of 1998 there are over 100 sculptures available ranging from $50
to $250,000 in a
variety of mediums. Images and information of these may be viewed via
the directory above.
Bear in mind that any work may be available in either medium even though
the image depicts only
one medium or colour. Commissions may be accepted for new works if Foot's

coast of Australia.
