Ira Reines | Sculptural Etherealism

In 1980, the iconic father of Art Deco and master artist Romain de Tirtoff— better known as Erté—aspired to have his beautiful drawings and paintings realized as sculpture. Having no sculptural experience, Erté sought out a sculptor whose talent and sculptural ability would faithfully translate those two-dimensional works into sublimely beautiful three dimensional bronzes. He selected Ira Reines, an award-winning young sculptural prodigy whose talent and passion impressed Erté.

 

Reines collaborated closely with Erté for eleven years, translating the master’s celebrated two-dimensional couture designs into a series of seventy bronze sculptures. Those sculptures were distributed world-wide and reside in the collections of well-known museums including Great Britain’s Victoria and Albert Museum, New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, Coral Springs Museum in Florida, and the Shanghai Duolun Museum of Modern Art in Shanghai, China.

 

Upon Erté’s passing in 1990, Reines returned to his own sculptural vision exploring the relationship between man and the cosmos, order and chaos and the sublime divine beauty that arises from it. Over decades of seclusion, meditation and introspection, he evolved the sculpting style known as “Sculptural Etherealism”—delicate and intricately formed figures of near-perfect beauty, emerging as if in the process of creation, replete with splendor and spirituality arising from the intricate relationships between order and chaos—beauty born of chaos, form created from formlessness.
