COPPER TRITSCHELLER


Copper Tritscheller isn’t necessarily drawn to the same animals that many sculptors like to portray. And Tritscheller’s creatures whether bats or donkeys, don’t always look like themselves because they bear humanlike features and talents. In fact, the sculptor’s signature bronzes push the boundaries between animal and human: burros balance precariously on pedestals and bats with exaggerated wings suggest comic-book superheros. The sculptor relishes working out the structural and aesthetic challenges of amalgamation and morphing the animal and human together in one figure. –Bonnie Ganglehoff, Southwest Art Magazine
