Sorel Etrog, CM (August 29, 1933 – February 26, 2014) was a Romanian-born Canadian artist, writer, and philosopher best known for his work as a sculptor. He specialised in modern art works and contemporary sculpture.
Etrog’s work probes the relationship between man and machinery and attempts to illustrate an expressive intersection between the individual and industrialism. The machinery of the manufacturer become the tools of the artist. Steel plating, sheet metal, bolts, rivets and hinges are prominently featured in this work of industrial art, illustrating contact, tension and articulation.
The artist has a fascination with the industrial themes of the twentieth century and asks the viewer to see that even the most utilitarian objects of our creation also have at least some artistic and expressive component.
