This is a Bronze face cast done through VetArt.org representing the God Odin. In Norse mythology, from which stems most of the information about the god, Odin is associated with healing, death, royalty, the gallows, knowledge, battle, sorcery, poetry, frenzy, and the runic alphabet, and is the husband of the goddess Frigg. The sculpture was cast and sculpted in wax before it was poured in Bronze using the lost wax casting method. I only have one picture of this piece as it is installed at the Vet Center in OC California, But it is being removed from there next week.
Growing up in San Bernardino, California, Kevin joined the Marine Corps at the age of 17. From 1996 to 2000 he served with 3rd LAAD battalion (3rd LAAD) as a stinger missile gunner. Kevin's art career started after getting out of the military as a way of decompressing from the stresses of daily life, working in drawing, painting, and wood burning. Linking together with VetArt, Kevin found a new passion for art through the bronze casting process, where metal sculpting has become his primary medium. As a instructor, Kevin now utilizes the skills he learned from VetArt to help his fellow brothers and sisters in the veteran community to positively change lives for the better.
Coping through Art
Art has been a blessing to me. Sitting down and focusing on a bronze sculpture takes me to a place where the stresses of daily life and the demons on the past are removed. As a instructor for VetArt I again get to see this transformation nature of the art process on a daily basis and I am constantly reminded that art and the creative process heals.
