Online Art Group has extensive knowledge and expertise in the works of Frederick Hart. He is considered by many to be the Master of American Sculpture for the 20th Century. Hart worked in bronze, marble, and cast clear acrylic resin. He was also a stone carver. He is considered to be the father of cast acrylic resin embedded sculpture, a medium that he pioneered. Hart referred to the process as "sculpting with light", a process we are often asked about and how it is accomplished. The process is created through the lost wax process, the same process used to cast bronze. The embedded sculpture is not simply an illusion, but a separate sculpture cast within the other. Each is individually cast, however, the second is cast around the first. His work was in direct contrast to that of other late 20th century artists, whose work was dominated by Modernist and Post -Modernist movements. He believed that the realistic representation of the human form was paramount, when other artists of the day rejected both.
