Mark Dedrie - Mark Dedrie, an artist in motion by Robin d'Arcy Shillcock The first things you notice when confronted by work of Belgian sculptor Mark Dedrie (1962) are the stylized shapes and their highly polished finish. Although working within the tradition in which colour is omitted in favour of form, his approach is not so much classical an literal as turning a refined distillation of visual reality into a sculptural statement. He transforms a world of colour and movement into a world of presences, of volumes and elegant lines, and manages weightlessness in heavy bronze. This results in tactile, visually attractive sculptures. There aren't too many sculptors who know how to stylize animal shapes well, and even fewer that seek the degree of refinement Dedrie is striving for. It results in soft and sensual surfaces that underline the exquisite grace of birds like ducks and long-legged waders. There are honestly merely a few I can name. Francois Pompon (France 1855-1933) worked on Rodin's marble sculptures before becoming one of the greatest animal sculptors of the modern era. His work instigated what I call the Movement of Form, comprising the sculptors who preferred to distance themselves from ...

Avril Ward - Artist's statement. Creating has become an intricately woven part of my life. I must express nature, as it is my window to God. I must delight in the human body, a marvel that never ceases to amaze. I must express love and joy-this keeps them tangible in my life. I must trust my instincts and skills allowing them to lead me in the right direction. Most importantly: if my art can move a person to pause, think, smile, ponder, cry, laugh, be encouraged or give them hope, then I have served my purpose in life."

Robert Kelly - Artist's Statement I have always loved doing things with my hands and sculpture was the next natural extension of that love when I decided to dedicate my remaining years to art. I have always loved the realism of the Masters like Michelangelo, Bernini and Rodin but also have always loved the works of the abstract Masters like Brancusi, Boccioni and Henry Moore. I have tried to combine these styles of observation and emotion. I am attempting to capture man's inner struggle, quiet contemplation, expectation and peace. When asked what my art means, I like to defer to the form and let it speak for itself. I feel strongly that my sculpture is my statement. It is hard to put into words what my art means or how I'm feeling about it while I'm in the process of creating it. I know when it's working for me and I know when I'm finished with a piece. It tells me when it's done. If different people see different things and have different emotions with my work then I have been successful. ...
