This First Section Shows Sculptures
Available in Both Monumental and Smaller Sizes
.



Free Flow
.
In creating "Free Flow," Sohocki reflected on the physical activities of Free Running or Parkour (par-KOOR). They are forms of extreme movement and gymnastics whereby participants aim to overcome obstacles in their environment to move from one point to another gracefully and efficiently without any special equipment.
.
Obstacles are transformed into thrilling challenges and opportunities for self-expression. Participants jump, run, scale, flip, drop and swing over whatever obstacles are present in the environment such as walls, rocks, railings, ledges, benches and rooftops.

The absolute nirvana of Parkour -- where a participant overcomes obstacles and moves at an almost fluid state directly and efficently over his or her surroundings -- is called "Free Flow."

This bronze sculpture is available in both 10 and 2 foot sizes and can be mounted either standing up or leaping.

Sun Dance


“Sun Dance” is an elegant and airy form evoking movement and spirit. This powerful, yet graceful sculpture reaches toward the sky in a “sun dance.” It evokes images of the sun, motion, and flight. It has been described as having “a calming, almost meditative effect.”


This bronze sculpture is available in both 8 foot and 36" sizes.

Double Dancer


“Double Dancer” attracts and invites the viewers’ eyes and imagination. A man and a woman merge into one through dance, creating a sense of joy, dance, music and, perhaps most importantly, unity.

The intriguing “Double Dancer” design always attracts attention and prompts discussion about the images portrayed.

This bronze sculpture is available in two heights: 7 1/2 feet and 34".

Contemplation

“Contemplation” suggests a woman sitting on a rock in a contemplative pose. On the other side of the piece, the same image exists, but in a more abstract and cubist form.

The more abstract side reflects influences from my teaching and travel in Egypt.

“Contemplation” is a tranquil image of the quiet reflection so helpful in life and art, particularly when times are hectic and difficult.

The original for “Contemplation” was carved from Travertine marble. The rock surface on which the woman sits is from the natural surface of the rough quarried marble.

This bronze sculpture is available in a 64" monumental size and a 32" size.

Endangered Grace



“Endangered Grace” is a strong, graceful sculpture with clean, simple lines that suggest a heron or crane. The piece reflects Dennis' concern that “grace” is vanishing from our fast-paced society. When we encounter grace, whether in people, wildlife, architecture or art, it captures our attention and inspires our admiration.


“Endangered Grace” is popular with admirers of both realist as well as abstract art.


The piece was the first abstract sculpture chosen for the Benson Sculpture Park in Loveland, Colorado.


This bronze sculpture is available in both a 16 and 5 foot size.

Wall Street Shuffle - Wood, Ht. 60"



In a radical departure from his typical style, Sohocki's "Wall Street Shuffle" takes a humorous but insightful look at the nation's current financial disaster and its causes. A wooden man has reached the pinnacle of a rising chart to "success" but is about to step off the cliff to his destruction. This "captain of business and finance" blindly proceeds to climb a rising chart with the steps entitled Ego, Venality, Greed, and finally Entitlement, carrying his flag of a $2 bill with the image of our founding fathers looking on from its surface.

The 5-foot tall "Wall Street Shuffle" sculpture was created in the American Folk Art style using recycled raw wood, copper, brass, steel, and a real $2 bill. Sohocki felt such a strong sense of outrage by events leading up to the recession, he was driven to express these tragic and corrupt behaviors through art.
